This class is designed for those who have taken the centerboard class or who feel comfortable taking a centerboard boat out and want to move up to a heavier boat and sail in more challenging conditions. Students who successfully complete the course and test will receive ASA certification. Subjects taught:

  • Maneuvering in and out of the marina
  • Boat preparation and inspection
  • Safety and weather analysis
  • Anchoring
  • Emergency procedures
  • Basic chart reading
  • Sailing a 24' boat in open waters, (e.g. Chesapeake Bay)

The student will improve on previously learned skills to feel comfortable chartering. Students who successfully complete the course may take the ASA test for certification. Contact the trip leader to let him know you're interested.

We need at least 4  students for this class.

Offshore class will be held June 2 and June 3 from 10 am to 4 pm on the Chesapeake Bay, Deale, MD. In the event of bad weather, the alternate dates for offshore classes are June 16 and 17.
