The Jr. Big Boat Sailing Program (JBBS) program is structured around the use of a volunteered big boat lent for use to the program by a club member, owner, or volunteer who receives no compensation for the use of the boat or its equipment. The program allows new sailors to learn the ropes on a big boat platform – or experienced junior sailors can apply their small boat sailing skills to a new challenge. The JBBS program highlights fun, social and teamwork. With JBBS skills, teens can be valuable crew on cruising boats and club racers. The program offers an introduction to Big Boat sailing through a framework of skills designed to provide teens with the resources to participate in overnight cruises or weekly race series.
The Junior Big Boat Guide provides a step-by-step guide for setting up the program and eight (8) lesson plans to run the program. Additionally, the Guide features a copy of U.S. Coast Guard exemption allowing for Level 1 Instructors to facilitate the program without creating a “for hire” situation.
