The Autumn Term starts Monday September 13 and runs until December 18. We take a break for October 1/2 Term and Rememberance Day on November 11. There are also no classes scheduled for Saturday September 25 due to BODA Nationals (Optis). Most sessions have 13 weeks this term. If you are interested in joining a session please contact the Sailing Director, Nathan, to inquire.

At this time sessions we do not offer 'open registration' as we do in the summer. Please contact the Sailing Academy to inquire and to make sure your child is placed in the correct group. Current students will receive a sign up email indicating what group(s) to sign up for.

2021 Summer Sailing

We're thrilled to be running a Summer Sailing Programme again this year. Currently we are limited in camp size due to Bermuda Government restrictions and you will find not all classes are offered every week. If we are able to add in additional classes will let you know here! We ask that you waitlist for the session you are interested in as we are able to accomodate most children on the waitlist. Feel free to drop us a line if you need more information!

The Sea Squirt programme is back after a break in 2020. So far we've only been able to schedule 4 weeks of the programme for 2021 due to Bermuda Government Covid restrictions. We've shortened the day for this group and now it runs 9 - 3pm.
