Congratulations to the sailors that won a spot on the initial week of our 2020 Sailing School program. It has been a very successful and fun start to the summer.
We are pleased to announce that we are adding a second two-week session to the program, beginning on July 20th (with the current 8 sailors in each cohort adding another 8 sailors for 16 in total). If your child did not win a lottery spot in our first week, you can apply again for a spot in our second session. As with the first session, 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 still unable to offer a program for CanSail 1 or Young Salts at this time.
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.
If you wish to enrol your child in the program for the July 20th start, please indicate your interest through the Contact Us page before noon on Thursday July 16th 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 20th start, please contact the club and we will reach out as we expand the program.
