Welcome to the Squamish Youth Sailing & Kayaking Camp 

 

The Squamish Yacht Club is happy to offer the Squamish youth and community something to look forward to this summer! We have reached out to members on the yacht club facebook in order to facilitate early registration for membership. 

 

The 2021 Sailing School program will consist of Intro to Sailing day camps only this summer. Our priority is to protect the health and safety of the community and respect the BC Health Authority Guidelines.

 

An update on sailing operations with respect to COVID 19 from the Squamish Yacht Club

 

Like you, Squamish Yacht Club is deeply concerned about the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. We take the health and safety of our sailors seriously, and want to promote socially responsible practices during this time. We are closely monitoring daily updates and taking the advice of our health professionals and local authorities. We are listening and practicing their recommendations on social distancing and self isolation. 

 

All programs this summer will have revised hours, fees and class sizes. 

Please find below information on our standard summer programs. 

 

​Introduction to Sailing & Kayaking:

 

This program is for youth 7 to 10 years old. It is a one week introduction to sailing and kayaking. Tuition is $350 for the one week and enrolment is limited to 10 students each session; Monday to Friday from 9 am to 3 pm.

​SYC MEMBER DROP IN - by donation

Hop into a dinghy with your friend, spouse, kids or bubble member. We'll teach you all the basics of sailing so you can get out onto the sound on your own. Used to be a dinghy sailor, come show us what you've got. Have a kid in sailing school, let them show you a thing or two!


 

The goal is to create a space for members to come and enjoy sailing; beer on the dock, sailing a boat, come hang out. We will have two instructors available to facilitate lessons, improve skills or even a few fun races. 


 

We hope to see you there!
