Sailing Camp for Teens

Summer is in the air...!



For those of you who have the sailing bug, this year we are offering our Sailing Camp for teens. During this course sailors will be skippering and crewing on either FJs or Club 420s or one of our J22s. It will be an adventure based program, where each day you'll head out with a destination to explore. There will be no checklists, no pass or fail, just fun days of sailing with kids of the same age.

The West Vancouver Yacht Club is home to some of the most awesome coast line and marine life around. While we can't guarantee it, seals, sea lions, hump back whales have all been seen recently near the club. Good winds and certified sailing instructors make our sailing programs a great option for summertime fun. Sailors ages 13‐17 enjoy daily instruction on topics such as the environment, rigging, the physics of sailing or boat care and are introduced to a variety of sailboats throughout their week.

So come on down, hang out and improve those sailing skills!

Students must have at least CANSail 1 experience.
