Increase your confidence and competence on skippering or crewing a larger yacht on extended coastal passages!

This five day, 4-night course for up to 4 students will train you on running an auxiliary inboard powered vessel under power and sail in all weather conditions, including varied levels of visibility during the day and night.

Students will gain hands-on experience with:

  • Coastal Navigation day & night

  • Anchoring Techniques

  • Docking

  • Storm Prep

  • Boat Systems
