This is a 2 day course aimed to provide candidates with introductory knowledge for crewing a sailing vessel (monohull or catamaran) up to 15 meters in inland or coastal waters <5 miles offshore during daylight hours in moderate wind and sea conditions.
This course is great for groups of friends or like-minded people to get together for a few days of fun sailing while learning skills to better help as crew onboard. Hopefully, candidates will enjoy the experience and progress to higher level sailing courses.
