Youth Sailing School

BQYC's Youth Sailing School is for ages 8 to 17. The program is a day camp format and provides sail training for beginner to intermediate sailors using Sail Canada’s CANSail “Learn to Sail” standards that focus on demonstrated skills and on-the-water training.

The Sailing School has four, two-week sessions in July and August. The participants work at their own speed to achieve nationally recognized CANSail (Level 1-4) sailing competency levels.  The sessions run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and include statutory holidays.  At the end of each session, parents and guardians are invited to watch their children on the water and enjoy a lunch BBQ. The sessions for 2024 are:

  1. July 1 - July 12
  2. July 15 - July 26
  3. July 29 - August 9
  4. August 12 - August 23
Regarding requests for single-week registration: If registration sessions remain open after May 31, BQYC may permit single-week registrations to fill available sessions. If they become available, details on these sessions will be published at that time.

To accommodate parents' work schedules, supervision is available starting at 8:00 am before and until 5:00 pm after class. If required, please select this option at the time of registration.
