Click on the following links to jump to the appropriate section.

Course Info
  • New for this year! We increased the number of our Youth Keelboat Sailing Camps (sailed in J/24s) and have divided many of our classes into Junior, Youth and Teen age groups. Please check the Youth Learn to Sail Course Descriptions page for more information on this and all of our course offerings.
  • Times vary for different types of classes so be sure to check the times for the class(s) you are signing up for. Times for all class sessions are listed below the date for each class in the tables below.
  • Most of the classes are a full week in length. However, during the week of July 4th there are classes for four days with no class on Wednesday, July 4th. This is reflected in the reduced price for that class.
  • Beginner and intermediate classes may be split by age group (participant numbers and instructor availability permitting).
  • Parents should plan on checking in students 15 minutes prior to the start of the class.
  • Check at the bottom of this page for applicable discounts, including a discount for BYC members and their immediate family members.

Scholarships

We realize that sailing is not the least expensive sport in which your child might choose to participate. We do have a limited number of scholarships available to those who qualify by being a participant of the free/reduced lunch program through the school district. Please contact us if you qualify and pass this information to anyone who may be interested. We don’t want to turn anyone away from the sport because of financial burdens, so please let us know if you need help financially.
