Bow Mar Yacht Club
Junior Sailing Ratings Levels
Bow Mar Junior Sailing adheres to the format of the US Sailing Small Boat Sailor Certification Record Book . The curriculum and guidelines help kids have clearer expectations of the skills that need to be accomplished in order to pass to the next camp level. Our goal is for your child to feel comfortable with his or her knowledge and expertise on our various sailboat fleets, demonstrating the skills that are needed to be a confident sailor.
Passing the Intermediate skills test (light and heavy air) earns a sailor their Solo Rating. With the Solo Rating, a sailor may check-out a club boat and sail by themselves, “solo”, on Bow Mar Lake when lifeguards are on duty.
Advanced Solo Rating
Passing the Advanced (Performance) skills test earns a sailor their Advanced Solo Rating. With the Advanced Solo Rating, a sailor may participate in BMYC Sunday Club Races, Wednesday night races, and may check-out a club boat when lifeguards are on duty.
