If you have never sailed before, or if you want to improve your sailing skills, these courses will develop your confidence and ability. Classes are kept small and stress the practical approach to training with as much on-the-water practice as possible.
Our nationally recognized program offers sailing instruction for children and teens aged 8 to 18. BYC membership is not a prerequisite for participating in the program.
Our goal is to give the participants a love, appreciation and respect for sailing and the water. We concentrate on keeping learning fun, in a safe environment. Youth that attend the Junior Sailing Program learn to work as part of a team, gain valuable leadership skills and increased self-confidence. The BYC Learn to Sail program has graduated many successful racers and life-long sailors. In recent years BYC graduates have represented Canada at the 2009 Summer Games and some are campaigning towards the London Olympic Games in 2012.
Parents are welcome to experience the club during their child’s session. BYC staff are available and more than happy to show parents what the club has to offer. The club offers a beautiful venue, adult sailing lessons and racing, tennis and many other activities as part of a family membership.
