Our Sailing Institute is all about attracting and retaining youth and young adult sailors, as well as connecting our dinghy sailors to keelboats, high performance match racing training and encouraging social networks within the membership for youth and young adults.
Our BW8 program plays an integral part in our Sailing Institute and has given dozens of young sailors a great head-start into the world of keelboat sailing under expert tuition and in a safe environment.
The Sailing Institute runs each winter from May through to September and is a combination of on and off-water sessions.
