Junior Sailing Programs

All Junior Activities programs will operate in accordance with public health guidelines.
The BCC offers a dynamic sailing program for our junior sailors. Classes follow the Canadian CANSail Program, and it is suggested that sailors spend a minimum of four weeks in each step of a sequence.

There are links below which help explain each step of the sequence in more detail and provide detailed program information for the upcoming season.

If you have specific questions about the sequence, or where your child should be placed, you may contact Brenda Wardhaugh, our Junior Activities Program Manager.
