Life is returning to a more regular schedule after the glorious chaos of summer. For our Apprenticeship Program, the end of summer means our apprentices are 3/4 of the way through their intensive sailing year. The only one of its kind on the west coast, our program gives a handful of young adults the opportunity to maximize their sailing time over the course of a year.
My favourite local sailing magazine published an article recently about how to choose a sailing school. While I was super excited to be quoted in the article saying something mildly intelligent (#adulting), the question of why you should choose a sailing school is perhaps even more important. Signing up for ‘formal’ sailing lessons is the best way to get started in sailing. No suit and tie required, but gortex and fleece are highly recommended.
We've been CRAZY BUSY for the spring and early summer... tons of learn to sail courses for new students, lots of racing, and many other adventures under our belts.
