ABOUT

Whether you want to learn from scratch or to improve your sailing skills and upgrade your certification to be a skipper - this course is right for you! This course reviews sailing from the skipper's perspective and teaches you everything you need to know in order to be able to take a 25'-55' sailboat on a day sail in the harbor.  This course includes a Maneuvering Under Power Clinic - which will teach you the principals on how to dock your boat like a pro every time! 

The course is structured so that you can study the theoretical part at the comfort of your home using any internet accessible device (desktops, phones or tablets). After completing your online studies and passing all the exams you will be able to attend our hands-on on-water lessons.  Upon passing both on-water and online  course successfully you will be awarded with the Skipper Rank  by NauticEd.
