This course requires Bareboat Cruising
The Catamaran Course is intended for those with a US Sailing Bareboat Cruising certification or equivalent skills. We teach this course aboard our brand new Lagoon 380 Catamaran. This yacht is fully-equipped for bareboat chartering. Our Catamaran course is designed for sailors looking to become competent and confident on larger cruising catamarans. You'll practice all the skills you need for chartering this yacht on San Francisco Bay as well as in any of the popular chartering locations worldwide, from Tahiti to Turkey, Australia to the Caribbean.
We limit the classes to four students and one instructor per boat. The curriculum consists of 28 hours of instruction.
Friday through Sunday, 9am–4pm
The OCSC Lagoon 380 Training Manual will be sent to you in advance of the course. Due to the unique characteristics of this yacht, it is very useful to have read the manual a couple of times before the practical training so you are somewhat familiar with the concepts being presented.
OCSC is the only school in the Bay Area providing you with waterproof gear to make sure you stay dry and comfortable while learning without having to add a few hundred dollars in gear to the expense of learning to sail. In any course you take here, we loan you waterproof pants and jacket along with a comfortable, Coast Guard approved personal flotation device.
