Open Sailing is BCB’s program to let people with some experience check out a sailboat on their own.  Interested sailors will demonstrate their skills on a certain boat to our instructors, who will decide if they are proficient enough to go out on their own.  If they are, then people can check the boats out and sail freely around Phinney’s Harbor for a block of time.

Boats available for Open Sailing depend on what is in use by classes or lessons, but generally include Bullseyes, Prams, Lasers, Hobie, and Stand Up Paddleboards.

Cost for open sailing: 

  • First Session: Free with purchase of Family Membership for $75.
  • Second and further sessions: $20 per two-hour block.

All currently enrolled youth sailing students may check out prams on Saturdays for FREE!  Bring your kids down so they can show off their skills.

Open Sailing will be available on Saturdays from 10am-2pm on most of our fleet, and available by appointment depending on boat availability Monday through Friday.
