Are you planning on purchasing your own cruising sailboat (or simply sailing ours!) or chartering in the Caribbean someday?  Our US Sailing Basic Cruising certification course is the first step for those who dream of going beyond Boston Harbor.  In this course, we apply the fundamentals to bigger boats (up to 30’ in length) with outboard gasoline or inboard diesel engines, and introduce the tools needed to sail longer distances.  While big boats sail just like small boats, there are more systems to learn and techniques to master.  Twenty-four hours is not enough to prepare students for every challenge a cruising boat can present, but it is enough to develop comfort around big boat basics, so that you can crew competently or take the helm under the supervision of a more experienced captain.  Basic Cruising takes place over two consecutive weekends, Saturday/Sunday/Saturday/Sunday from 10-4:30 each day, with a half hour hour lunch break.  Maximum of 4 students.

Graduates may test for their US Sailing Basic Cruising certification. The additional experience will also typically help boost the Courageous skipper rating of students with solid Rhodes boathandling skills, enabling access to the outer harbor and Harbor Islands.
