WINDSURFING: Lessons for everyone.
Sailors, kayakers, beach bums: Discover a fun new way to enjoy your ocean playground: take a Level-1 Windsurfing class! After only 2 hours on land and 6 hours on the water, you'll gain all the skills you need to comfortably and safely windsurf on your own, or with your new windsurfing pals.
L1-qualified members: Give those arms a rest. Learn to sail with a harness in one of our L2 classes! You'll also learn to beach start, gybe and fast-tack.
L2-qualified members: Are you ready for the thrill of high wind? Take a high-wind lesson. In this full-day class, you'll travel to Squamish in order to learn the skill that is essential to tackling high winds: the waterstart.
L2 and high-wind qualified members: Learn how to impress others with fancy freestyle moves on the water, while improving your sail and board handling techniques, by taking a Freestyle lesson with Joost. We now offer two levels of Freestyle classes to cater to all of your heli-tacking, duck-gybing, sail-throwing, and general showing-off needs!
If you have any questions, please email Cindy at
, and she'll be happy to help you out!
FREE Safety Seminar at Jericho
The English Bay Safety Seminar was developed for users of the Jericho Sailing Centre to help keep them safe at play on the waters of English Bay. The seminar covers basic water safety fundamentals along with user specific information drawn from the logs of the Jericho Rescue Team who have intervened in thousands of "sea disasters" over the past 38 years.
Why make your own mistakes when you can learn from the mistakes of others? Don't challenge Darwin's theory, make sure your water safety knowledge is the fittest it can be. Your survival may well depend upon it. Find the missing links and fill in the gaps in your water safety knowledge by attending a FREE English Bay Safety Seminar June 3 & 24, July 22 or August 19. All times at 1900H RSVP JSCA office.
