Our main goal in all of our yachting and sailing classes is to share experience. Everyone’s skills will improve as we work with and learn from each other during our offshore passages. We take a process-oriented approach to developing boating skills. We want to make sure you understand why things are the way they are on the boat. What you will take away from this experience, in addition to improved skills and awareness, is a greater degree of independence and confidence on the water.

We have a series of modules we try to cover on each cruise. Due to weather, and the interest of the students aboard, the actual curriculum does vary from class to class.

All classes are taught by two instructors and class size is limited to guarantee quality instruction.

Our instructors are certified by ASA and US Sailing.  Qualified

students may earn their certification on select passages through

affiliated sailing school partners.  Contact us for details.

Generally we cover the following skill sets:
