Course Structure:

The Basic Keelboat curriculum is structured to challenge every level of person and rewards each with the objective and subjective know how to command a boat of this size. Review the curriculum for this segment of the course here. The second component of the course is Live Aboard Cruising. This portion of the course is designed to instill complete confidence in captaining a bigger (+36') sailboat. Bareboating is not necessarily difficult to do.
