The goal of this two-day (14 hours total) course is to introduce the student 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 student 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. We recommend that students follow on to take our Bareboat Course to refine your skills and become certified to charter our yachts and vessels worldwide.
