Find kids' sailing programs in vancouver.

Kids' sailing programs in Vancouver offer an exciting and educational experience for children to explore the city's stunning coastal waters while learning the art of sailing.

With its picturesque coastline and favorable wind conditions, Vancouver provides an ideal setting for young sailors to hone their skills and develop a lifelong love for sailing.

These programs are designed to introduce children to the fundamentals of sailing, including boat handling, navigation, seamanship, and safety procedures, while instilling a sense of confidence and respect for the marine environment.

What do kids learn in sailing programs?

Here are five things that kids typically learn in sailing programs: 1) Sailing Techniques:

  • Kids learn the fundamentals of sailing, including how to rig and de-rig a boat, adjust sails to harness the wind, steer the boat using the tiller or wheel, and execute maneuvers such as tacking and jibing. They develop an understanding of how to use wind direction and boat trim to control speed and direction while sailing.

2) Safety Procedures:

  • Sailing programs emphasize safety on the water, teaching children essential skills such as how to properly wear a life jacket, how to capsize and recover a boat, and what to do in case of emergencies such as a collision or man overboard situation.
  • Kids learn to recognize and respond to potential hazards while sailing, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience on the water.

3) Navigation and Seamanship:

  • Children learn basic navigation skills, including reading charts and understanding navigational aids such as buoys and markers.
  • They also gain an appreciation for seamanship principles such as right of way rules, proper anchoring techniques, and how to respond to changing weather and sea conditions while sailing.

4) Teamwork and Communication:

  • Sailing is a team sport that requires effective communication and collaboration among crew members. Kids learn to work together with their peers to sail the boat efficiently, coordinating tasks such as trimming sails, adjusting course, and responding to commands from the skipper or instructor.

5) Environmental Awareness:

  • Sailing programs often incorporate environmental education, teaching children about marine ecosystems, wildlife habitats, and the importance of conservation efforts to protect our oceans and waterways.
  • Kids develop a deeper appreciation for the natural environment and learn how to minimize their impact on marine ecosystems while enjoying recreational activities on the water.

What to look for in good sailing programs for kids?

When evaluating sailing programs for kids, consider the following five key factors: 1) Qualified Instructors:

  • Look for programs with experienced and certified sailing instructors who are skilled in teaching children of varying ages and skill levels.
  • Qualified instructors can provide effective instruction, personalized feedback, and guidance tailored to the needs and abilities of young sailors.

2) Safety Measures:

  • Prioritize programs that prioritize safety with comprehensive safety protocols, including proper equipment usage, emergency procedures, and supervision on the water. Ensure that instructors are trained in water safety and first aid to handle any potential emergencies.

3) Age-Appropriate Instruction:

  • Choose programs that offer age-appropriate instruction tailored to the developmental needs and abilities of children. Beginners may require basic sailing techniques and safety instruction, while more advanced programs should offer opportunities for skill progression and development.

4) Small Group Sizes:

  • Consider programs with small group sizes to ensure personalized attention and instruction for each child. Smaller groups allow for better supervision, individualized feedback, and opportunities for kids to build camaraderie with their peers.

5) Variety of Boats and Equipment:

  • Seek programs that offer a variety of boats and equipment suitable for children of different ages and skill levels. Whether it's small dinghies, keelboats, or multihulls, having access to a range of boats allows kids to experience different sailing conditions and develop their skills in various types of vessels.
  • Additionally, ensure that the program provides well-maintained and age-appropriate sailing equipment for children to use during lessons.

INFORMATION FOR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS

EHYC Membership Application

EHYC was formed on June 1969 as a non-profit organization and is registered under the Societies Act. EHYC will always be a small yacht club because we are limited to the present number of approximately 85 mooring positions and by a desire to remain small and friendly. Our members come from all walks of life and use the club to enjoy the full range of activities associated with sail and power boats.

The Club offers a number of benefits and advantages to prospective members:

Protected mooring facilities with a resident Superintendent. The moorage is protected by a substantial floating breakwater system. Water and electricity are available on all docks.

EHYC’s clubhouse (situated on the rock bluff overlooking Eagle Harbour and the Straits), is well furnished and a wonderful location for our club social events. We have an active social program, and because the club is small, it is easy to get to know fellow members who share a similar passion.

We have a racing fleet, club cruises (sail and power), keen fishermen, paddle boarders and kayakers.

Ideal location – for sailboats, the summer Wednesday evening and winter Snowflake races start right outside Eagle Harbour, and for fishermen there is good winter mooching a few yards from our breakwater. We are adjacent to Howe Sound with easy access to the Gulf Islands.

A very active Junior sailing training program which operates in July and August. 

Because the Club has a small membership base, we only have two staff. The breakwater and floats require regular maintenance, and much of this is carried out by members work parties during the weekends. New members should therefore be aware that they may be called upon to participate in a work party – usually twice a year for half a day on a Saturday outside of the boating season.  It’s a great way to get to know fellow members.

As noted above, the Club can accommodate approximately 85 boats, depending on the blend of boat lengths at any given moment. Available moorage is allocated according to the Bylaws and Regulations (see Regulations C). A waiting list of members with their membership number is is kept in the office. The Club makes no guarantee as to when a new member will obtain moorage, since this depends entirely on the turnover rate, which varies from time to time.  Moorage is restricted to active member only and in case of a jointly owned boat, both owners must be active members. The maximum dimensions for any boat moored at EHYC are an overall length of 38.0 ft (including all appendages) and a beam of 12.0 ft. Charges for moorage which are based on a sliding scale depending on boat length are adjusted from time but are generally significant lower than commercial Vancouver marinas.

JOINING THE CLUB

Each prospective member must complete the application form provided in the link above and send it to the address noted at the foot of this page, together with a cheque for the entrance fee. Entrances fee for Active members may be paid in two instalments – one half initially and the balance at interest of 10% per year on the first anniversary date or upon obtaining moorage, whichever happens sooner.

All new members should have their application signed by two sponsors who are members of the Club. If you do not know anyone in the Club, please send in your application form to the Membership Secretary who will meet with you and introduce you to club members who can act and sign as sponsors.

We thank you for your interest in EHYC  and we look forward to having you and your family as members of our Club. If you need further information please contact the EHYC office ([email protected]) during business hours or Membership Secretary.
