Hi all… we have a question regarding finding opportunities to get out on the water.
We joined BSC in April 2019 however we’ve not yet found an available opportunity to join a day sail or evening sail, as they either fill up quickly or the dates have not worked for us. We do however see some weekend days where some of the boats are available. We are not yet certified to Level 5 so our question is, how do we reserve a boat on a day that’s available and also find a certified skipper willing to spend the day with some newbies? Is there a process we’re overlooking on the website or is it a matter of getting to know certified skippers?
I should add that I have the Sail Canada Basic Cruise Standard Certification gained through a live aboard course in March 2019 so I do have a minimal amount of experience, but have not been on the water since the course. My wife also achieved the Crew Standard at the same time.
Thanks for your patience and understanding!
