Bay Skipper


Ready to take the helm of a small keel boat as skipper? This program moves you up from where the Crew level leaves off.
In the Bay Skipper program, students will gain the skills necessary to act as skipper aboard a 22�-24� day sailing keelboat in familiar waters. This second week mirrors the format of the Crew program (two evening lectures and two days of Sailing) with the aim of attaining the CYA Basic Cruising Standard upon completion.

FORMAT - two evenings midweek from 6.30 to 9.30pm (Monday & Wednesday for those showing a Monday start or Tuesday & Thursday for those showing a Tuesday start) as well as the Saturday and Sunday that weekend from 9 to 5pm each day.

Want to gain experience on larger boats?
