Coastal Skipper Sail

Sailors refine and deepen their sailing skills and knowledge as they learn to navigate and skipper a boat in familiar waters in sight of land in moderate weather. In this course, students will further develop all the necessary navigation, boat handling, sailing, weather, and emergency management skills they learned at the Basic/Crew/Day Skipper level.  Here student must demonstrate proficiency in all areas of vessel handling, sailing, and safety and be ready to learn the additional decision-points necessary to accept the responsibility for the safety of the crew.  The course objective is to be able to cruise safely in familiar waters as both skipper and crew of a sailboat in moderate wind and sea conditions by day. This course brings you closer to being able to bareboat charter.
