Sail Camp for 2022
Bremerton Yacht Club is stepping up its Sail program to offer even more camps this year, including one for adults! There will be one evening camp (total of 4 sessions) for adults aged 18+. The BYC Adult Sailing program will be supported by three US Sailing certified instructors.
Our sail camps are a fun place to learn safety, sailing and boat handling skills, and respect for the marine environment. Sailing is a lifelong sport that develops motor skills while building self-confidence and teamwork on the water.
Sailboats: Columbia 21s
Skills covered: Students learn basic sailboat handling skills forming the foundation for a lifetime of sailing. Lessons are conducted by dedicated sailing instructors trained in first aid, CPR, water safety and small boat handling skills. Sailboats are fixed keel Columbia 21 sailboats with safe and comfortable cockpits. The course begins with shore side instruction using US Sailing basic keelboat textbooks (included in tuition) followed by practical on-the-water coaching with a student/instructor ratio of 3 to 1. Classroom instruction will include review testing and follow up.
