Beginner Cruising Camp
Note: This is a full-day class, 5 days: (Monday – Friday) (Ages 12-18 years)
This course is for students ages 12-18 interested in recreational sailing. Students should have completed the Intermediate Learn to Sail course, have a US Sailing Certificate, or demonstrate comparable sailing experience. This course will include one over night at BYC’s Out Station at Inati Bay on Lummi Island! This course can be used as one of the qualifying prerequisites for students wishing to attend our Advanced Cruising Camp.
The focus of the course will be to plan a day sailing trip considering factors such as wind, tide, and weather. The J/24 will be our training platform. Our day trips may include sailing to Fairhaven Harbor and Larrabee State Park. As mentioned above, an overnight trip during the week for a camp-out at the BYC Outstation at Inati Bay is included. This is an ideal opportunity to find a friend to sail with and join a group sailing on Bellingham Bay! The overnight camp will be supported with three (3) instructors and a motorboat. This is a very popular course so sign up early!
