Earn Your ASA 104 Certification with Our Bareboat Cruising Course!

Learn how to sail a sloop-rigged, auxiliary-powered 30′-45′ sailboat during a multi-day cruise upon inland/coastal waters in moderate/heavy winds and sea conditions. Learn about provisioning, boat systems, auxiliary engines, advanced sail trim, coastal navigation, anchoring/mooring, docking, emergency operations, weather, and more.

All classes are customized for each student. We meet at 9 am for introductions and a short class time. Then it is out to the water. The instructor will make a customized suggestion to meet your goals and use the logbook for a guideline and syllabus. We focus on more time on the boat for skills, and practice and less in the classroom. On the 2nd afternoon, there will be a written 100-question test, 80% to pass and practical on the water. Our goal is to coach you for success throughout the whole program.
