Pacific Sail offers a wide variety of gift certificate options making them the perfect gift for any occasion!
Basic Sailing and Seamanship Gift Certificates: $300
This two-day course will teach the recipient the fundamentals of sailing and seamanship. A total of 12 hours of onboard instruction will provide them with the skills and confidence they will need to safely skipper and crew a 27′ to 30′ tiller sailboat in light to moderate wind and sea conditions on lakes or other protected bodies of water.
Basic Coastal Cruising Gift Certificates: $400
This course prepares the recipient to sail and cruise safely in local waters as both skipper and crew on an auxiliary powered sailboat of about 30-34 feet during daylight hours in moderate to strong wind and sea conditions. They will build on the skills learned in the Basic Sailing & Seamanship course and acquire more advanced boat handling,
safety and seamanship skills.
Intermediate Coastal Cruising Gift Certificates: $400
The goal of this two-day course is to introduce the recipient to the traditional techniques of Coastal Navigation, and to refine the skills learned in Basic Coastal Cruising. The Intermediate Coastal Cruising Course is the second half of the Basic Coastal Cruising Course.
At the conclusion of the course, the recipient should be able to read a nautical chart and identify corresponding landmarks and aids to navigation, determine the vessel’s location, plot a course to steer, properly dock the vessel under motor power, take appropriate precautions when sailing under reduced visibility, and successfully recover an overboard victim.
Bareboat Course Gift Certificates: $400
This course continues to prepare the recipient to charter a larger wheel steered auxiliary powered sailboat, sailing by day in coastal waters in moderate to strong wind and sea conditions. They will continue to build and review on the skills learned in the Basic Sailing & Seamanship, Basic Coastal Cruising and Intermediate Coastal Cruising courses.
Completion of this class prepares them to take the ASA Bareboat Chartering Certification.
2-Hour Private Skippered Charter Gift Certificates: $400
Our US Coast Guard licensed Captain will take the recipient and their party of up to 5 guests (6 people maximum including the recipient) on board one of our 10 luxury sailing yachts. Restroom (head) and kitchen (galley) facilities are located below deck. They can get a feel for sailing on the beautiful Monterey Bay National Sanctuary. During their sail, they are welcome to participate as much as they desire. If they choose to just watch the coastline, and enjoy having our Skipper sail the boat completely, that’s fine also.
Pacific Sailing is an accredited American Sailing Association sailing school and yacht charter company with a fleet of 10 sailing yachts from 27-46 feet. We offer all levels of sailing instruction, Team Building Regattas, Skippered Charters, and Bareboat Charters.
