BASS RIVER SAILING SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
The Bass River Sailing School provides student-focused instruction in sailing with a low student to instructor ratio, for children 7-18 years of age. Over many years, the program has emphasized developing well-rounded skills in all areas of sailing while allowing more advanced sailors to pursue higher levels of competition, if desired.

Our approach to this learning process is fun oriented, using a wide variety of activities to reinforce sailing skills and confidence. It goes without saying that if children enjoy what they are doing, they will learn faster and more thoroughly. They will also be more apt to continue sailing for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Only through good communication among all parties can we maintain our consistently outstanding sailing program which provides our children with sound sailing skills, builds their self-confidence, and ensures a fun-packed sailing experience. Parents and children (members and non-members) alike should feel free to direct questions and suggestions to our Program Director Mark Ahern at email@example.com.
The BRYC and Bass River Sailing School are proud to partner with the Sturgis Charter Public School to be the spring training center for the school’s sailing team.
