A four-day live-aboard course offering Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Certification on board our beautiful, Beneteau 40′ Cruising Sailboat. This mini-vacation is for students who have completed Basic Keelboat (or have significant small boat experience) and desire to achieve a high level of competence and self-sufficiency.

NB We offer a reduced schedule in hurricane season (through September) . The course requires at least one night at anchor.
The yacht is located at the Miami Yacht Club providing easy access to Miami, Coconut Grove and Biscayne Bay-the ideal cruising grounds for intermediate sailing training.

The emphasis is on learning while having fun in a hands-on course voyaging through the Florida Keys.


Ideal for couples who aspire to the cruising lifestyle, while covering the full course agenda for Basic Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Certification, special emphasis is put on the “big three” areas that charter companies look for when you book;

1. Anchoring – securely overnight, taking into account all factors including weather changes.
2. Maneuvering under power in a confined area- your first test when taking the helm of your charter boat.
3. Navigation – knowing precisely where you are at all times, and how to get to your destination; how to manage in restricted visibility making maximum use of all available data.

4) Self sufficiency and flexible trip planning.

During this highly-recommended course, you will learn how to plan your voyage with the emphasis on safe operation and optimum enjoyment.

Rate; $2,995 Per Person or $4,995 Per Couple
