As ever PSC s driver is SAILING FOR ALL sharing our love and passion for the sea
We are signing up participants for the inaugural course
Our instructors advise as follows
Come Sail with Us! At PSCA Beruang we use Optimist Dinghies to offer our Junior sailors an opportunity to develop new skills, have a fantastic experience and develop the ultimate passion.
We cater for children between the ages of 8 and 14 and classes are intentionally kept small to offer the maximum care and support to participating children. Parents can be involved and are welcomed but the idea is to develop a group
We believe our Sailing experiences and programs can play a key role in helping kids enhance their physical abilities and mental acutivity, improvement in motor skills and coordination, self-confidence, independence, identity formation,focus, and pride through accomplishment as well as the experience of adventure, mobility, and freedom.
Enhancing self-efficacy from learning and mastery of new skills, exposing to nature (wind, water and ocean health, environment, plastic pollution, conservation), introduction to water safety and, comeraderie with other participants, experiencing pleasure and enjoying themselves together
.Our boss a dedicated sailing racer would add that the club wants to build a competitive fleet able to compete with other fleets nationally and internationally
The club also Byte class single handers available as our trainer learn the skills
There are two ways for your child to get started: Our preference is to join one of our group classes so that all can play and learn together, but for a child less certain a private lessons or may increase their confidence and at least see if they are interested in the sport. This has to be in a bigger boat Opis are one person !
Our students will be encouraged to keep logs of their progress through the 3 stages. The instructors plan to follow a teaching schedule that allows students to complete all topics required to pass each stage. and will certify this in their personal log. The log can be used as proof of competency for each stage.
Each stage requires approximately 8 hours for successful completion. Packages of 8 hours of training will coat RM 800 per person payable in advance
Certificates will be issued by the Club or our issuing Authority The Commonwealth of Dominica Maritime Registry which is recognised world wide
. Additional training hours will be available if needed
Students will be divided into groups with a maximum of 8 students based on
their skill level (novice, intermediate, and racing) and progress.The plan is for each group to train separately but at the same time , leading to racing together
Children interested in participating in competitions are required to join the Beruang Club under the Academy
We recognise that a commitment for a longer term is important both for students’ progress as well as better scheduling of training sessions. This is particularly important for students wishing to progress in competitive
There is a schedule for Beruang program , minimal tide as the best sailing time , and on each Sunday we will have Squib racing as well for the parents to enjoy
