9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

You can Sign Up for the 2018 Sailing Program in Sooke now. Your kids can have fun, and learn to sail right in Sooke BC! Children will learn the basics of sailing in a unique environment focusing on fun and boating safety. Launching, docking, steering, balancing, and propulsion are just some of the activities covered both on and ouff the water.  Seven-foot Optimist sailboats will be used in the program. By the end of the course, students will be able to safely sail on their own! In addition to these skills, the program develops confidence and leadership in its participants.

No experience is necessary and you don't have to be a member. Professionally trained and Sail Canada Certified coaches will ensure every experience is a positive one. There are three levels taught. Click below for a detailed description of topics covered in our course. BC Sailing has developed three course curriculums or "levels" which students work toward achieving during their sailing course. No matter what level of sailing ability the student is at, even if they've never set foot in a boat their entire lives, students will have fun learning to sail at a level that is comfortably suited to their age and abilities. Students who already have sailing experience or have taken a MOSS course before (even 2 or 3 of them) will continue to be challenged as they work toward progressing through the levels. Below are brief descriptions of the three curriculums used. As students learn their new skills, they achieve a stamp on their report card indicating their ability to demonstrate them.

When they are ready, students will progress onto the next level. Many students will spend more than one week at their assigned level while others may finish and begin working toward their next one in less time. This competency-based education and training system allows students to learn at their own individual pace. Typically, first time sailors are initially assigned to Opti Level 1, while much younger students (for example ages 6 - 7) are assigned to Wet Feet. However, all students will learn in the same class no matter what level they are at. Wet Feet Description Report Card Opti Level 1 Description Report Card Opti Level 2 Description Report Card

The cost for each one week class is $262.50 and the age span for students is age 6 - 14.
