Program Description & Details

The West Vancouver Yacht Club offers Introductory Dinghy Sailing Classes to schools for Grades 3 through 12. The goal of the program is to promote safe boating while exposing as many kids as possible to a recreational water-sport like sailing. Living on the west coast, it's important that students learn how to act safely and responsibly around the water. Sailing is the perfect medium to learn about safe boating, and, of course, an exciting and memorable way to begin or end the school year. Classes of up to 30 students can enroll in courses tailored for your needs, with special attention paid to the age of the students and time available for learning. There are several class structures to choose from, please contact our Sailing Director for details. All classes are taught by Sail Canada certified instructors who are trained to make sailing both fun and safe. The boats used for elementary aged sailors will be Optimists and high school sailors will use a Flying Junior. All equipment including PFD's (life jackets) is included. Courses are offered from May through June and September. A minimum of 15 students are required for each class. This is a great opportunity to give students a taste of the exciting sport of sailing and water safety.

Program Description & Details

We offer a custom version of our walking tour, The Forbidden Tour – specially adapted for school groups – that provides an interactive forum for students to learn about BC and Canadian social history through Vancouver’s past. The tour recounts the results of the temperance movement’s push to make BC liquor-free in the early 20th century. Their successful campaign in 1917 made Vancouver a dry city. But only in theory. In reality, the city was overwhelmed by illicit activity, including bootlegging, gambling and vice. The tour charts the influence of women’s rights, religious fervour, war, corruption and crime on the city’s morals during a time of huge economic growth. Lasting 2 hours, the walking tour makes a unique field trip for any secondary-level student group: the tour discusses the effects of WWI on Canadian society; puts a human face on the pre- and inter-war periods in Vancouver; explores Canadian prohibition and involvement of Canada in later U.S. Prohibition; discovers the role of women in social, political, and economic change through the temperance and women’s suffrage movements; visits some of the most historically significant buildings and places in Vancouver, including the Hotel Victorian, Dominion Building, Sun Tower, Shanghai Alley, Carrall Street, Hastings Street, and Water Street; discusses the race riots of 1907, including the events leading to it and the aftermath for Chinese and Japanese people in Vancouver; draws parallels in contemporary attitudes toward drug prohibition and poverty with social issues and remedies of the early 20th century.
