April/May Basic Cruising - April 28 & 29; May 5 & 6

Ever dreamed of owning or chartering your own cruising sailboat?
US Sailing's Basic Cruising Certification Course is a 4-day intensive sailing course in which you will learn to responsibly skipper and crew an auxiliary powered cruising sailboat during daylight hours, within sight of land in moderate wind and sea conditions. 

Participants need to have successfully completed the US Sailing Basic Keelboat Certification in order to qualify for the Basic Cruising Certification.

The cost for the course includes all study and testing materials; the cost does not include Basic Keelboat Certification costs. A participant may challenge the Basic Keelboat Certification after taking the Basic Cruising Course if need be and receive retroactive certification, but all students should be proficient small-keelboat sailors under normal conditions and come into the course with the prerequisite skills linked HERE.

If you need to challenge the Basic Keelboat Course, please contact Stuart via or call the office at 410-727-0722
