Coastal Cruising is an intermediate sailing course designed for those who have completed Basic Sailing, or those with equivalent experience. The goal of the Coastal Cruising course is to prepare the student to cruise safely in local and regional waters as skipper or crew on an auxiliary powered sailboat up to 30′ in length in moderate wind and sea conditions.
Chart reading, plotting and coastal navigation skills are taught during this course.
Our weekend course meets Saturday from 9am to 5:30pm & Sunday 9am to 6:30 at Pier 25 Marina in Tribeca. There is a break in the middle of the day for lunch.
Skipper boats under 30-feet in challenging locations such as New York Harbor, join our Coastal Cruising Practice Sails, and qualify for Bareboat Cruising, ASA 104.
