Welcome back, Rothesay Yacht Club Sailors

Welcome, Rothesay Yacht Club Sailors! 

We’re really looking forward to another fantastic sailing season at the Rothesay Yacht Club, and we hope you are too!  Last year was our first year back after a year’s hiatus, which made the sailing season extra sweet. This year we’ll have  some returning and some new instructors. We’ll be offering 4 two-week youth sessions, each with a cap of 30 sailors.  We’re also trying a new format with the Adult Learn to Sail, running the program twice per week for four weeks. The new  model will include a New Sailors Learning Package, which we know our Adult Learners will find helpful and will get them  excited to hit the water! Each adult class is capped at 16 sailors. 

Rothesay Yacht Club (RYC) is a private yacht club situated on the beautiful Kennebecasis River. The RYC was  established in 1907 and has been the home to sailors enjoying the river ever since.  

For those of you new to sailing, the RYC Learn to Sail program models itself on the CANSail program developed by Sail  Canada, the national sporting organization for sailing in Canada. Sail Canada provide us with technical resources,  materials and national standards from which we design and deliver our sailing program. All our instructors have received  training and certification based on Sail Canada’s national standards and are registered instructors with Sail Canada.  

Within this website, you will find all the necessary information to prepare you and your junior sailor for the summer. We  have also included our policies (safety, registration, participant expectations, etc.). Please let us know if you feel there is  anything that should be added in the future. 

I look forward to meeting you all this summer. Happy sailing!
