Junior Sailing Registration Announcement
A reminder that Junior Sailing registration opens this Thursday, March 1. The link will go live at 9 am AST. Please check out the newly updated Junior Sailing section on the CYC website for more information on this year’s program. As mentioned, we have aligned our program with Sail Canada and CANSail levels.
The online system is very easy to use. Please note the Sail Nova Scotia Participant Fee is mandatory for all sailors. Also please make sure you select the right boat (for those in CANSail 1&2, Opti or Echo, and for those in CANSail 3&4, Opti or 420) AND, if your child sails an Opti, if you intend to use a CLUB OPTI or are bringing a PRIVATE OPTI.
We have set interim, conservative program maximums for each class. We have hired additional instructors for this season but safety for our sailors is paramount. These maximums do not mean your child will not get into your chosen session; all classes will run a waitlist and we will be admitting students on a rolling basis, as we see where children are registered, to ensure enough hulls and adherence to the Sail Canada Instructor to Student Ratios. Again, safety is our number one priority.
We have a number of exciting new changes in place for the 2018 season and will be rolling those out to you throughout the Spring and into the summer. Watch your Inbox, too, for an email introducing you to our fantastic instructor line up for the summer as well.
Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
Cheers to a FUN and SAFE summer on the water!
