The Learn-to-Cruise Levels are taught aboard 22-25 foot keelboats like the one show here. A keelboat has a large (usually lead) fin attached to the bottom of the boat, called a keel, that does the work of keeping the boat upright.
The various courses are taught aboard boats that range in size from 22 to 40 feet in length. All boats are safe, comfortable and a pleasure to sail.
Each course has a maximum of 4 students, thereby giving everyone lots of practical hands-on time in each of the different positions on the boat.
Courses available are:
Basic Cruising : Designed for first time sailors who want to learn how to sail a larger boat. This is our most popular course and is often the first course people take if they have never sailed before.
Intermediate Cruising: Recommended for people who are interested in owning or chartering a boat. It places emphasis on practical training while living aboard.
Advanced Cruising: A challenging course. Objectives are to act safely as skipper and crew of a sailing cruiser of 10 - 15 meters, any modern rig and inboard engine, operating within 100 miles of shore by day and night in coastal or inland water in any weather.
