Our award winning program offers sailing instruction for children and teens aged 8 -18. Our goal is to give participants a love, appreciation and respect for sailing and the water. We concentrate on keeping learning fun, in a safe environment! Youth that attend the Junior Sailing Program learn to work as a team, gain valuable leadership skills and increased self-confidence.
Welcome to the Britannia Yacht Club Junior Lean to Sail Program. My name is Lisa Shishis and I have been lucky enough to be the Youth Director ay BYC for three years. In this capacity, I oversee the Britannia Junior Club, learn-to-sail programs, high performance race team and optimist race team. I have been actively involved in youth sailing as a parent for over 10 years at the Club, Provincial, National and International levels of sailing.
The fundamental objective of the BYC Junior Club program is to instill a love of sailing in every sailor that joins our program. Ideally, we want our sailors to have fun, create long-lasting friendships, learn about teamwork and become more self-sufficient. Sailing is a life long skill that can be enjoyed any where.
