Information for Parents, Guardians and Students


Thank you for sending your Registration.

We are looking forward to a fun filled learning experience at the LJYC with your child.



LJYC Sailing School on the CNIB property just off Lake Joseph Road, #4 Joe Finley Way. We are located south of Gordon Bay Marine and North of Foots Bay.

Pease take great care and observe the posted speed limits. as you enter the CNIB road as there are visually impaired campers on site.

Proceed straight down this road until the end where you will see out site.  You can’t miss the sailboats!!!  There is limited parking at the sailing centre and we ask you to park at the end of the lane or on the West side of the laneway.  Please avoid parking the gravel Fire route.  You can find us on Google Maps.



Regular Sailing School Hours are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily, Monday to Friday.  Note Morning only sessions from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Our instructors have preparation and planning to do before and after classes and cannot be responsible for your child outside these hours unless prearranged.



As you know, School runs through 6 to 7 weeks of a very hot (we hope!) summer. Please remember that lunches and snacks may be outside in the sun for most of the day so a freezer pack is helpful.

All students in a full day program will need to bring a lunch with them as there is no on-site facilities to purchase food.  We do have water on-site to fill up student water bottles however.  Note, there is no sharing of food and all garbage must be taken home due to COVID restrictions.  Please send a plastic bag to make it easy for them. 

NOTE:  It is important that any nuts, including peanut butter, not be a part of any lunch or snack as   several students enrolled have severe peanut allergies. We are a nut free facility.

  • Please keep the grounds tidy. Remind your child that they should not leave and garbage after lunch and should dispose of it in a bag to take home.
  • All items that your child brings to sailing should be clearly labeled. It makes it easier for our Instructors to make sure anything left behind is returned daily to the correct child.  Please check the Lost and Found bin at the end of the week for missing items.
