Race Team (CANSail 5+6)  

An intensive sailing program designed to teach advanced theory, racing rules, racing, tactics, spinnaker, trapeze and qualify these students for the CANSail 5+6 level.

A Sail Canada qualified coach, who will instruct students and coach them on the racecourse, directs this programme.

The program will be taught using the Club supplied Club 420's sailboats. These are high performance, expensive racing dinghies. The Beaconsfield Yacht Club believes it is important to supply these quality boats to students in order to improve their skills, encourage their continued participation in sailing, while maintaining affordability and accessibility for all. Along with this commitment from BYC comes the need for a commitment from the students. Each student will be expected to treat the equipment as if it were his or her own. The club will reserve the right to charge participants for damage done to the equipment resulting from negligence or carelessness, to a maximum of $500.00 per boat crew member.

Students are required to compete on a regular basis. In addition to the daytime program, participation in other racing events is expected. Participation in evening club racing and weekend regattas around the lake is encouraged. In addition trips to other cities may be planned, participation in these trips will be dependent upon level of participation in the local events and family support and will entail addition costs. We encourage students to seriously consider enrolling for both sessions. "The Race Team" curriculum is very demanding and will easily require two or more sessions to achieve.

Two sessions are offered for the coming season. Participation is limited to 10 students per session due to the limit of 5 C420 boats supplied by the club. The possibility of "bring your own boat" participation is there, however this must be discussed in advance with the club manager.

All students will be required to be club members. The junior fee for the 2017 season is $97.00 less discount of 15% = $82.45 + taxes.
