Private Instructional Charters- Newport

Published by Swain Sailing School and Yacht Charters on Friday, 4th January 2002 - 12:11PM in Newport, RI Courses


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 Bareboat Cruising certification within their family sail.

Review the Basic Cruising and Bareboat Cruising certification requirements that can be achieved during your private family charter.

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.  Basic Keelboat training 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.
