This course requires Bareboat Cruising
Sailing with confidence is what happens after a skipper obtains a robust set of sailing and seamanship skills. In larger cruising boats, the tricks are different than for smaller boats like J/24's – and the tricks elude many a sailor. Our Advanced Bareboat Cruising course offers you the opportunity to continue to grow and focus on areas that most skippers long to improve. This is a sailing course, but with a cruising emphasis. With coaching from a professional, you will expand your own comfort zone in ways that are sure to yield lasting results. Whether you’re cruising on San Francisco Bay, preparing for your next tropical Bareboat Charter or preparing for long-distance cruising, this course will help you develop some hard skills and understanding that will enhance cruising competence and inspire confidence. When Mother Nature serves up a curve ball, you'll feel ready to hit it out of the park.
Saturday and Sunday. 9am–5pm each day.
