COVID-19 Update March 2021:

Last season, we were able to successfully offer modified programs by following the provincial Summer Camp guidelines. We are planning on operating under similar guidelines this season.

However, we do not yet know what the specific rules will be this year. As a result of this uncertainty, we be accepting a reduced number of registrations until we know for certain how many sailors will be able to accommodate.

If a session is full, you can register and be placed into a waitlist. If spaces become available, sailors from the waitlist will be automatically moved into the session.

  1. Each sailor must have his or her own approved vest type lifejacket. This will be worn at all times when on the water. Note that lifejackets must be approved by either Transport Canada, Canadian Coast Guard, or Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
  2. Sailing is an active pastime. Each sailor must be able to swim a minimum of 50 feet within a reasonable time.
  3. Each sailor must be able to swim underwater.
    (Note that sailors may be tested to ensure they meet above swimming requirements.)
  4. Each sailor is requested to dress for the weather, considering both temperatures (hypothermia) and sun (UV) for any given day. Sailors should also bring sunscreen as necessary for their own use.
  5. Sailors must bring proper footwear that can be worn on a boat and in the water.
