EHYC Sailing School - Summer 2020 Programs
 Description

Eagle Harbour Yacht Club (EHYC) is perched on the beautiful West Vancouver coastline, on Eagle Harbour Road off Marine Drive, beside Eagle Harbour Beach where we have a protected harbour within which to offer our summer sailing school and camps. 

 Our address is 5750 Eagle Harbour Road.

Please take your time driving along Eagle Harbour Road as there are many young children, dogs, and pedestrians in our neighbourhood who also use this road. 

 

Please note – we only accept registrations for Eagle Harbour YC courses, not West Vancouver YC. 

We look forward to having your child spend part of the summer with us, enjoying water-based activities with their friends, new and old. This year we have five courses to choose from, according to age and skill level. You can learn to sail from age 6 - as long as you turn 6 by the end of the year. We introduce basic sailing skills and develop existing skills, with our coaches tailoring instruction around the sailor's individual needs, creating a fun summer with their friends and unforgettable memories. Our classes at Eagle Harbour YC are purposely small, to offer maximum safety and quality of instruction. Friendships are an integral part of the fun of sailing, and we encourage you to sign up a buddy to share the experience.

Each weekly course runs from Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm (except no class on the Civic August holiday, August 3rd). They break for lunch, where the sailors eat at our beach. There may be days with too much wind, or no wind, where we either utilise our paddleboards and kayaks, or have a host of fun activities either on the beach, in the clubhouse, or a short walk to the local park.

How Much?

The cost of the course is $350 and includes a BBQ lunch on our clubhouse deck every Friday and a covetable EHYC t-shirt. We recommend you register early to choose the date you want with your friends as courses will fill quickly. 

Early Bird Registration

We are offering a $20 early bird discount on 1 week courses if you book before 30 April 2020.

Course Descriptions:

Wet Feet (Opti Intro) ($350, book before 30 April $330, includes BBQ lunch on Friday and Tshirt) – A gentle one-week introduction to sailing in Optimist dinghies for children 6-9 years of age who have no sailing experience. Multiple weeks may be booked at this level - our focus is safety and fun on the water.

Opti Basic ($350, book before 30 April $330, includes BBQ lunch on Friday and Tshirt)  Upon completion of Wet Feet, children 6-9 years of age can begin developing their sailing skills in Optimist dinghies during these one-week courses. CanSail1 material will be introduced at this level. Multiple weeks may be booked at this level - our focus is safety and fun on the water.

CANSail 1 Basic ($350, book before 30 April $330, includes BBQ lunch on Friday and Tshirt) – A one-week course for children 10+ years of age and weighting at least 50kg, who are beginning their journey in sailing or progressing from Opti Basic. This is an entry level course which teaches fundamental sailing skills including basic sheeting, steering, and boat handling on all points of sail using double-handed dinghies. Upon completion, sailors can sail within defined boundaries set by an instructor.

CANSail 2 ($350, book before 30 April $330, includes BBQ lunch on Friday and Tshirt)  – A one-week course which builds on the skills learned in CANSail 1. This teaches sailors to adjust their bodies and boats for changes in direction and wind speed while sailing, and to perform boat-handling manoeuvres in a controlled manner while in a controlled setting.

CANSail 3/ CANSail 4 No longer offered at EHYC, however, if there is demand, we could run a course - email the office to go on a waitlist ehyc@ehyc.org.

Eagle Harbour Summer Sailing Camp ($350, book before 30 April $330, includes BBQ lunch on Friday and Tshirt)  - For students aged 7+ interested in having a more relaxed experience, we are offering one-week Eagle Harbour Summer Camps. This week exposes children to recreational sailing skills (no previous experience necessary), fun and cooperative watercraft games (SUP and kayaks), art projects, and some beach, park and hiking activities. This is a great way to make the most of what Eagle Harbour has to offer, taking advantage of the beach, boats, and sharing experiences with friends.

Swimming Ability

As our courses and camps are focused on water activities, it is important that your child be comfortable around the water and know how to swim. All children will be required to bring and wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket. They also must be prepared to have their swimming levels tested prior to starting lessons. 

What to Bring

  • Coast Guard approved life jacket (you can rent one if you don’t own one)
  • Bathing suit
  • Change of clothes (at least one)
  • Towel
  • Rain gear
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Proper footwear (please no flip flops or open toed shoes, shoes similar to Natives and Crocs are recommended)
  • Healthy lunch and snacks
  • Helmet (you can rent one from us) to use until you become accustom to ducking when the boom swings over your head :-)

Change of Date and Cancellation Policy

Should your plans change, and you need to modify your registration, please note that there will be a $30 charge. In the event that you need to withdraw from a previously registered course, and your request is received more than 14 days prior to the beginning of the course, a cancellation fee of $50 will be deducted from the refund amount. For our part, EHYC will endeavour to offer a full complement of courses based on the published schedule, however in the event that a specific course does not attract sufficient registration we will reach out to you in as timely a manner as possible and do our best to accommodate our mutual schedules. We do however reserve the right to cancel a course which has less than 4 participants registered, in which case you could either register for another session in our schedule or receive a full refund. Please contact the EHYC office (604-921-7636 or ehyc@ehyc.com) to make any changes.
