Keelboat Sailing School at HYC
HYC and SBSC are hosting One Design Sailing Academy in order to offer sail training at the Basin. We are offering courses for both adults and youth.
The adult courses are called “Keelboat Day Skipper”. In the course students will learn just about everything they should know to skipper a boat safely. Skills and knowledge include: Safety, Helmsmanship, Rigging and Derigging, Navigation, Sail Trim, Docking, Anchoring, Man Overboard and so much more. Students will receive the internationally recognized Sail Canada “Basic Cruising Standard” certificate.
We will also host a “Start Sailing Youth Keelboat” course. This program covers much of the same material as the Keelboat Day Skipper course, but in this case it is aimed at youth, aged 13 - 18.
Both of these courses are an excellent way for you to get your crew well trained. Encourage your crew to sign up or send your child for a great summer experience! The result will be a more effective crew and a much safer boat.
The courses and dates are as follows:
Adult Course 1: Keelboat Day Skipper: Two weekends, July 9/10 and July 23/24, $750 + tax
Adult Course 2: Keelboat Day Skipper: Weekdays, July 11-15, $750 + tax
