Sailing Camp 2019

BRLA Sailing Camp runs for one week this year, from Monday August 12th to Friday August 16th. The program is aimed at sailors aged 8 to 14, and is designed to introduce beginners to sailing while also challenging the more advanced sailor. The cost remains at $410 per sailor for the week-long programme.

Camp programming is developed and delivered by qualified instructors through Ontario Sailing's BOOM Mobile Sailing School. Instruction is offered in CANSAIL I and II, and boats are provided by the BOOM Program. This Mobile program is intended to give participants a fun introduction to the sport of sailing.

As of May 20th - there are 5 spots left.  Sail camp,  like many  BRLA programs are planned for members’ benefit. However, if any member would like to sponsor a child to attend Sail Camp, we welcome this offer and will open any vacancies to non-member children as of July 12th. (a month before the program)
