This is an advanced-level course designed for experienced sailors looking to further their skills in offshore sailing. This course is taught on 30’ to 50’ boats and builds upon the practical applications of Coastal Navigation and dead reckoning as well as the application of previous course material to help you develop the knowledge and confidence to responsibly skipper and crew an inboard auxiliary powered cruising sailboat for coastal or offshore passages, including strong to heavy conditions, zero visibility, and nighttime navigation in unfamiliar waters out of sight of land.
Our Advanced Cruising course is taught only on the ocean, providing an immersive experience that prepares you for the real-world challenges of offshore sailing. Our instructors are seasoned ocean sailors with extensive offshore experience, including weathering hurricanes, crossing oceans and seas, and sailing internationally. You'll learn from the best and acquire knowledge and skills that can only come from years of experience.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive the ASA 106 Advanced Cruising Certification.
All prices are for on the water private lessons, to make sure not crowd the boat.
