Lessons & Mentoring
If you are new to sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and paddle boarding, we require all members to take beginner lessons before using any fleets. We offer many beginner lessons throughout the spring and summer. You can sign up for lessons during the registration process or at any point afterwards by checking our lessons calendar.
If you do have previous experience, we have the option for members to take a proficiency exam. An instructor will ask you to perform certain skills on the water and determine if you have all the required abilities to get certified on our fleet. Click here to see more about proficiency exams.
After passing a lesson or proficiency exam you are allowed to take out that fleet and the corresponding "lower level fleets". For example, if you pass the advanced 1 sailing proficiency exam you may use our intermediate and beginner boats as well. Before you can go and use our equipment you need to record your Jericho card number in your UBCSC account. This is very important as your Jericho card gives you access to our different equipment rooms. Once certified you have unlimited access to the equipment and may take it out as many times as you wish free of any additional charges.
