BOATING ON THE BAY FOR HOMESCHOOLERS
BCSC is offering a 6-day sailing course for Home School Students on Thursdays from 10am-2pm beginning May 4, 2023.
Beginner and returning sailors are all welcome to this course. We will teach the basic skills to beginners and more advance skills to those returning to the class as experienced sailors. Our objective is for students to learn how take a boat out to sail on the Bay and then return safely. We also teach students how to take care of their boat before they go out and after they return. All of this is accomplished while we have FUN boating on the bay.
Depending on individual requests and the number of students registering for this course, kayaking will also be offered.
Day: Thursdays beginning May 5, 2022
Duration: Six (6) weeks
Time: 10:00AM – 2:00PM
Make-up day: We will attempt to schedule a make-up day for any weather cancellations on a weekday other than Thursday.
If you are interested in enrolling your student in this program, please contact Randy Dulin via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
