PLYC  Sailing Lessons 2017

 Date:  24-28 July 2017

 Location: Pigeon Lake Yacht Club, Bobcaygeon


Dear Parent/Guardian/Student


            The Pigeon Lake Yacht Club (PLYC) in conjunction with the Ontario Sailing Association (OSA) is planning to host the OSA BOOM Sailing School from 24-28 July 2017. Participation in the one-week Program will be limited to 16 students from 8-14 years old for the daytime lessons (9 - 4PM) and to 8 adults for the evening classes (5:30 - 8:30 PM).

             The early registration period in the fall/winter of 2016/17 resulted in us filling the Adult evening classes and placing a number of students in the 8-14 age group.  With a firm date in mind, we are now hoping to encourage you to consider or, as the case may be, reconsider enrolling your children in this novel Program. We think the remaining spots will go quickly. You are required to submit a non-refundable deposit of $100 with your registration form. I realize this is still early in the year but the Club is obliged to submit regular deposits to the OSA over the period end February to end May and all our deposits are non-refundable. Your final payment is due by 26 May 2017.

             The cost for the Lessons is $330 for students, age 8-14 and $275 for adults. The latter includes the 2017 membership in the PLYC and allows these students to gain further experience with our members through the Club mentorship initiative. A similar ongoing program is being considered for the younger students. We will consider family memberships for those students who complete the Lessons. Students in the day Program must bring a lunch each day including refreshments or refreshments may be purchased at the Club.  On the last day of lessons the PLYC will provide Pizza and refreshments.

             OSA instructors instruct students with two students per boat. Lessons are conducted in accordance with Canadian Sailing Association guidelines and standards. The PLYC will have members in location to assist in supervision/safety including on the water safety boat.  The weeklong instruction is an excellent introduction to sailing and promotes an active outdoor lifestyle with learning and challenge.

             Here in the web site you will find the registration form. Please take the time to consider your child’s and your summer activities and hopefully make it a priority to include this wonderful opportunity to enjoy a special outdoor activity and learning experience. Please feel free to call me at 416-546-2765 should you have any questions.  We look forward to hearing from you.
