Adult Programs

Adult Lessons - Lessons for all skill levels

RVYC offers adult sailing lessons for both members and non-members.

Monday and Wednesday weeknight sessions will be taking place in May, June, July, and August. The sessions are grouped into three or four consecutive Monday/Wednesday evenings, but will not run on holidays (Victoria Day, Canada Day, and BC Day for example). The evening classes will utilize the club's Catalina Capri 22 sailboats, with three to four students and one instructor per boat.
Weeknight Lessons will be from 1800-2000 hrs.
 
(All lessons will be primarily built around on the fundamental skills needed to sail small boats and the CANSail curriculum. It will not follow the Sail Canada 'Learn to Cruise' standards.)

Students should bring their own PFDs, sunscreen, water, and notebooks.
