We can take you from your couch to the captain's chair in a week in our sailing certification courses. Great for solo travelers, couples, and families. We teach aboard Colgate 26 keelboats and 40'-50' cruising yachts, sailing, and power catamarans, where you can choose to stay ashore each night and enjoy the many resort amenities, or live aboard while learning for the week.
