Learn to Sail Program for 2022

We are planning to open 2022 LTS registration on February 27 at 12:01 am. If the success of last year’s program is anything to go by, spaces will go quickly so please plan to register as soon as you can!

The COVID-19 pandemic is still with us but at least this year we are going back to courses with two sailors per boat which is more fun than sailing alone and helps to create a better team environment.

As ever, our goal is a fun and safe program so some COVID safety measures will remain in place based on Ministry of Health guidelines.


About Our LTS Program

The Deep Cove Yacht Club is a non-profit organization offering internationally recognized learn to sail programs designed by Sail Canada and BC Sailing. We have been offering sailing courses to children in the community for over 25 years! Our emphasis is competence at sea taught in a safe, fun, environment.

All of our instructors are certified and our fleet of sailing dinghies includes Fevas, 420s, Lasers, Pirates, Optimists and Oppis.

Our LTS courses comply fully with Ministry of Health rules and guidelines designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections and keep our sailors and coaches safe and healthy.

We will post a course schedule in February and open registrations February 27th 2022 at 12:01 a.m. so please watch this page! LTS courses are very popular and spaces go quickly!

Financial Assistance Available
A few years ago we set up a bursary fund to help financially disadvantaged children to participate in the Summer Kids program. This program will continue in 2022. We can subsidize a portion, but not all, of the fees in the belief that each student should contribute something towards this very exciting summer experience. For more information please contact our Learn to Sail Director Chris Seed.
