Fully-immersed sailing intensive.

Participants of Bareboat Cruising (ASA104) will receive a combination of instruction and hands-on learning that covers piloting, dead reckoning, docking, system troubleshooting, maintenance, navigation, cruise planning, weather forecasts, and overnight anchoring.

Two nights will be spent on board.
