At what age do you start sailors?
Due to the nature of the onshore wind and beach at Ambleside as well as the ramp, which requires physical strength to pull boats up to the yard, we require students to be a minimum of 10 years old. Younger students (6-10) are encouraged to register for our Opti program through BC Sailing.
What kind of boats do students train in?
The club owns a large fleet of two-handed boats, comprising 420’s, Pirates, Flying Juniors and Laser II’s. We also own 8 Lasers, 6 with radial rigs. Depending on the program and individual proficiency levels, students will sail one of these boats.
What is your cancellation policy?
There is a $35 administration fee for all cancellations. There is no refund for cancellations made 7 days or less prior to the beginning of a course. There are no refunds under any circumstances once a course has started. Exceptions to this rule may be made if cancellation is necessary due to injury or illness. To cancel out of a current sailing session, please email the training director at email@example.com.
