Family Charters - Incorporating sailing instruction into your family charter.

Parents and family members over 16 years of age who have the Basic Keelboat prerequisite may choose to achieve their Basic Cruising and Bareboat Cruising certifications within their family sail. For those requiring the Basic Keelboat precursor course, this course can be accomplished as an intensive 2 day course, or the standard 3 day course. Children 12 and older may also participate in the Basic Keelboat course and test for the certification. We do recommend a less intensive pace (3-4 days preferred) for kids. This is a day course and on shore accommodations will need to be arranged. The Accommodations section provides information and rates on the hotels we recommend.

Yachts: Monohulls and catamarans available.
