****News on Summer sailing school 2020 and COVID-19****

It is with great disappointment that I must announce the cancellation of all sail training classes at BYC for this summer. We have been reviewing the “Camp” guidelines issued by the Government last week as well as the CNESST guidelines for work environments and have sadly concluded that we will not be able to offer our programs. Given the nature of our activities, teaching first time young sailors, 2 person boats for the older kids, the fun of all being together enjoying the joys of sailing and the unpredictability of the weather we do not feel that it is possible to follow all of the requirements for a safe and FUN experience. This is a first for us, amid a year of firsts for us all.

Refunds will be issued back the same way as you registered. Credit card refunds should appear within 7 business days.

Thank you all for your faith in our programs and our wonderful instructors. All being well we will be back ready to go next summer.

Stay well everyone.
