Adult Programs at BYC

BYC has a long tradition of great coaches, amazing waters, and the best location on Kempenfelt Bay to learn to sail. BYC sailing school offers adult learn to sail and keelboat courses, as well as clinics. 

You do not need to be a member to enroll in our sailing school. 

All our instructors are fully qualified CANSail Instructors.  Coaches have spent years training as sailors and achieved national instructor certification through Sail Canada. Certification includes everything from first aid, water safety, teaching, lesson planning, leadership, and most importantly sailing. 

Using Sail Canada’s CANSail programming – our instructors maximize as much time on the water as possible with an emphasis on practical sailing as well as sailing theory, rigging, and boat maintenance. More importantly, our instructors and coaches teach their lessons by doing and showing rather than talking and testing.
