Shark Program 2019

Learn to Sail without owning a Boat

Adult Learn to Sail 

We recognized it can be expensive for families to get involved in the sport of sailing and so developed an adult learn to sail program using BSBC keelboats to introduce sailing to those with no prior experience.  We refer to the program as the Shark Program.  The program is a hands-on sailing course using a defined syllabus and is taught by experienced Club Sailing Mentors with years of experience cruising and racing keelboats.

Whether you are new to sailing or have been sailing for years, the Shark Program lets you develop and hone your sailing skills at your own pace.  Club Sailing Mentors also provide you with ongoing coaching in the sport.
