What is a Cruise and Learn Course?
The cruise and learn format is the most enjoyable and effective format to learn to safely sail and live aboard a sizeable keelboat in tidal waters. Learn to sail, live, cook, cruise, tour, observe, discover, adventure.
Over five days you will build your knowledge and gain experience in cruising in keelboats. Find adventure in secluded anchorages, enjoy the wild life and sea life that abounds and enjoy great meals and social time.
Customise your cruising location and enjoy the Gulf Islands, San Juan Islands (usa), the Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound, the Broughton Archipelago, or beyond!
