Youth Sailing School New Information for 2019:

  • In an attempt to get as many kids as possible a chance to sail with us, you may only sign up for ONE session of sailing per child at a time.  If there are openings available after June 1 and you would like more sessions, please indicate that on your registration form and we will begin to fill open spaces after June 1 with 2-session sailors.
  • All students at all levels above Beginner will be assessed for sailing skills by the instructor staff during the first week of classes. BCB reserves the right to move students up or down to the class appropriate for their skills, regardless of age or previous experience.
  • Resident Discounts for year-round full-time Bourne resident youth will be, starting in 2019, only available for THREE SESSIONS of any combination of Beginner, Advanced Beginner, or Intermediate classes per student.
  • Membership has increased to $75 per family and tuition fees have increased 10% for core sailing school classes for 2019.  This is a necessary move as we try to keep up with ever increasing costs to run this complex program.

Scholarship applications are available for download here or by emailing amy@bournecommunityboating.org. Scholarships are available for full-time, year-round Bourne resident youth, please inquire if you are in need.  Families that receive scholarship assistance are expected to help our program by volunteering their time.  Repeat applicants will be asked how they volunteered in the past. Contact amy@bournecommunityboatitng.org with questions or to find volunteer opportunities.
