Sailing Program - Peter Steenbergen

The Lasqueti Yacht Club has purchased 8 Laser dinghies we now have the opportunity to start a Sailing Program, with the goal of attracting more people, young and old, to the sport of sailing.

We are now putting together a Sailors Group within the LYC to make this happen. We need Club Members to join this group and work on what needs to be done.


Burgees are for sale to Club members for $25 each. Please contact the Commodore or any Executive Committee member and we will arrange for delivery.
