BYC Safety

Safety at BYC

At BYC, good practice is safe practice. With its history of volunteerism, the onus is on the Member to observe safe practice in a variety of boating tasks and help others to learn boating best practice. To show its commitment to good boating safety, the Board of Directors approved the attached revised policy/regulations in 2011 to guide all Members.

To improve your boating practice, first and foremost, attend a recognized boating safety course to get your Pleasure Craft Operators Card that you should carry at all times before you take your boat on the water . Feel free to make use of the various checklists and suggestions posted here to make your boating experience better and safer.

On May 12, 2011, two of BYC's most experienced sailors, Ron Schute and Dennis Foy, collaborated on a best-practices seminar to advise Members on how to "go fast", which combined tips on racing faster and general boating safety. The slides they used are posted here for your use. The seminar will be repeated in future seasons. Look for details to be posted.
