Basic Cruising Certification (ASA 103): This certification is a prerequisite for our course and ensures that students have a basic understanding of sailing terminology, sail trim, and boat handling.
This sailing course is designed to teach new sailors the necessary skills to safely and responsibly skipper, crew, or bareboat charter an inboard auxiliary powered cruising sailboat within sight of land. With a focus on daylight hours and moderate to strong wind and sea conditions, our comprehensive course covers all aspects of sailing, from basic terminology to advanced navigation and safety protocols.
These Lessons are taught on a private basis to ensure a solid foundation. We allow a maximum of two students per boat. However, this is a live-aboard course and is somewhat like a vacation. You are welcome to invite up to two guests to share this unique experience with you for no additional charge. Your guest will act as crew and will not receive certification.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive the ASA Bareboat Cruising Certification (ASA 104).
