Information to all the TYPBC courses parents: 

Parent beach master: Sailing is a fantastic sport for the family. We would really like it if you could stay around. We will need one parent per session to stay as a beach master. The beach master parent will have the opportunity to learn a lot about the sport and the best of all, help your sailor much more with his/her sailing course by understanding how things work. It will be a beach master roster so all the parents can have a turn on different days and times. Please email the coach with the days and times that you can be available! Sibling 10% discount: To get this discount please contact the TYPBC office. One sailor pays the full amount and the sibling pays with the 10% discount.
