During the Covid-19 pandemic we ask for everyone’s cooperation in helping Venture BC run successful and safe courses and sails. According to the provincial health authority, the risk of transmission in an outdoor environment in general is extremely low. However we still want to minimize all risks onboard. It is important that everyone is following the guidelines laid out by our provincial health authority in their day to day lives, and is prepared to follow the additional rules that Venture BC has put in place to mitigate risk for our students and instructors in our unique environment.
Before joining any course or sailings with us, all students are required to read and sign an addendum to our normal waiver, agreeing to some basic conditions of participation.
