All sail training programs (Sailing School, Learn to Race, Youth Race Team, Adult Learn to Sail) operate from the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club (BQYC) located at the tip of Victoria Harbour in Belleville. The air-conditioned building and classrooms are designed for training and larger groups, so we couldn't ask for a better facility. The grounds are a safe, park setting providing sunny and shady areas for many on shore activities, and on the Bay of Quinte for excellent sailing experiences. Dinghy summer lawn storage is available to our racers and members.

The Sail Training Committee oversees –

  • For Mature Teens & Adults – The Adult Learn to Sail – Keelboats & Adult Dinghy Program
  • For Children & Youth - Sailing opportunities include summer camps, group lessons and the learn to race program.
  • Racing programs @ BQYC – For children and youth eager to learn to race and practice their skills we offer the Youth Race Team. Open to anyone with CanSail 2 and above.
  • For advanced youth racers, we offer high performance team opportunities. Selection is made each spring and by coach approval.
  • For Youth and Adults, we offer Saturday regatta events throughout the summer. Don’t have a boat? Charter an Optimist and Laser! (based on availability)

Please review our programs and select a summer full of fun!
