Adult Improvers, Social Sailing and Start Racing
Held on the second Saturday of each month, BCYC improvers meet for free coaching and advice from experienced BCYC members, RYA coaches and instructors. These ad hoc sessions vary in size and format, with the focus on all aspects of improving your sailing, with the emphasis on having fun and being social on and off the water. BCYC training boats can be hired at a reduced cost for these sessions. and it is proving immensely popular with new members to develop their sailing in the company of others.
