Sailing School Opening for Summer 2020!

Sailing School Opening for Summer 2020!

Thank you all for your patience. The Lake of Bays Sailing Club is pleased to announce that we will be opening the Sailing School for summer 2020. Our staff has been diligently readying the club for sailors with full COVID-19 precautions in place.

The Sailing School will start on July 13th with a limited scale of both sailors and instructors to ensure compliance with COVID-19 regulations and procedures established by the various governments, health boards and other interested organizations. To begin, we will be hosting two half-day sessions with cohorts consisting of eight sailors: CanSail 2 and 3 in the morning and CanSail 4-6 in the afternoons. The minimum age is 10 years old (at the start of Sailing School). Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions, we are unable to offer a program for CanSail 1 or Young Salts at this time.

As the summer progresses, we hope to increase the number of cohorts and will keep you informed.

Given the limited spaces available, we will be restricting enrollment in the Sailing School to LBSC members only (enrollment for 2020 is also available on the registration page). In addition, given the safety procedures in place to protect both the sailors and LBSC staff and the requisite training, a minimum two week commitment will be required. Should demand for the school exceed our capacity, we will allocate spots based on a lottery.

Registration Procedures

If you wish to enroll your child in the program for the July 13th start, please indicate your interest through the Contact Us page before noon on Thursday July 9 with the full name of your child, CanSail level and date of birth. If allocated a spot, you will be contacted by the club and will be required to register and pay for the session within 24 hours. If this is not completed, the spot will be allocated to another sailor. If you are not allocated a spot, we will place your child on a wait list.

For weeks other than the July 13th start, please contact the club and we will reach out as we expand the program.
