2017 Junior Sailing Program

I hope you are as excited about the 2017 season as we are. We have added 3 brand new 420's to our fleet and the rest of the boats are getting cleaned up, tuned up and ready to go. We are also rolling out a new online registration and parent communication process to make it easier for coaches, parents and students to stay connected. Lastly, we are kicking off the year with a huge fundraising cocktail party at the amazing Dossin Museum on March 25th, buy tickets HERE.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Todd Riley
BYC Junior Sailing Chairman
