Covid 19 Update for 2020 Learn to Sail Programs (May 20, 2020)

Dear customers:

BQYC has made the decision to cancel our Summer Youth Sailing Camps.  Although it was a disappointing decision, we know it was the right decision to protect the health and safety of our participants, our employees, our members, our families, and our community.  We will contact families affected and process their refunds as soon as possible.

In order to make the decision we overlaid the safety requirements from our medical and sporting association experts against the nature of our day camp program and facilities.   In the end, we could not find a way to provide safe, physically distant, all-day care through all weather conditions in our camp setting.  Besides, it would lack the fun that children expect in a summer camp experience.

We will investigate the feasibility of offering a program of short duration sailing lessons for individuals or families similar to our adult dinghy lessons.  We envision that these lessons would be booked in advance, would be dependent on student-matched wind conditions, have very low student to instructor ratios, and not rely on any indoor club facilities.

Please watch for updates.

In the meantime, we hope that you and your family remain healthy.

Ian McPherson,
Mitch Kennedy, 
Fleet Captain, Sail Training
