Adult Sail School Schedule 

March 18 - April 15

  • Wednesday nights, 7-9 pm (the first night we meet at 6:30 to get administrative things out of the way.)
  • Four consecutive weekend sessions, either 8:30 AM or 1PM on Saturday or Sunday (Students will choose which weekend session fits their schedule and sign up during the first evening class.)
  • A traditional, yet optional, sixth Wednesday sunset “sail out” on April 22nd hosted by BCYC members aboard their own sailing vessels.

For details see the Adult Sail School Webpages

The course is designed to be accessible to the complete novice. The objectives of BCYC's Basic Sail School are to produce graduates who can rig the sails of a small boat; assess the wind; sail away from the dock; perform the basic maneuvers of tacking, jibing, and trimming sails; and sail safely back to the dock. We also provide information about federal and state safety requirements, emergency procedures, and “local knowledge” of nearby waters. This is accomplished during five Wednesday evening classes, and four weekends of "hands-on” sailing experiences aboard a fleet of exciting new Catalina 16.5’ self-righting, self-bailing sailboats on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay.

To fit busy schedules a student may miss one of the Wednesday night classroom sessions and one of the weekend waterfront sessions without being disqualified from graduation. Even if a student is unable to complete all requirements, we encourage them to finish the class. Make-up sessions are often possible and more sailing opportunities are available during your free three-month trial membership.

Classes fill up quickly, so register early!
