CHECK OUT THE 2018 SCHEDULE FOR SAILING & POWERBOATING CLASSES!

The 2018 schedules are here! Due to overwhelming demand, we’re sailing along the Amalfi Coast of Italy again, in June! And also because you asked, we’ll have classes in the Pacific Northwest – Washington State’s San Juan Islands – in May. Sailing and powerboating courses are scheduled in Florida, for all of you who want to warm up in the sunshine while learning or polishing your boating skills.  We’re still working on additions, so check in with us often.

Give us a call!

LOOP-EXPERIENCED BOAT SEEKING NEW HOME

The Loop-ready 36′ PDQ powercat “Magic” is available for sale.  Currently docked in St. Petersburg, FL, “Magic” has just completed the Loop with her owners Nelly and Jacques, who will now return home to France.  She is a turn-key vessel, ready and eager for more cruising adventures.  If interested, contact Nelly and Jacques at 727-478-7481 or email nelly@leloop.fr or jacques@leloop.fr

After a grand adventure in the US and Canada, Jacques and Nelly are also thinking of new cruising adventures to come. Perhaps you’ll see them exploring the Pacific Northwest next!

So much water, so little time!

 

 

 

 

GREAT WORDS FROM A NEW BOATER!

We get mail about our live-aboard courses …

A little free publicity for Sea Sense Boating … I spent Sunday through Friday with Capt Carol Cuddyer and Capt. Jill McCarthy as instructors, and Diana as my fellow student, on a 42′ Californian power yacht.  I came away with a new confidence in my ability to drive, dock and anchor a boat.  I can read a chart, plot a course.  I know the Rules of the Road, I can navigate through crab pots, various markers, and how to use the radio.  Of course, I have much to learn yet but I’m ready to partner with my husband in life aboard a boat!  I highly recommend this company – owned by and operated by women, both licensed captains, extremely knowledgeable and very patient.  Carol owns the company with Patti and they have been doing the teaching, moving boats all over (including in other parts of the world), readying folks for handling their own boats for well over 20 years.  Love them, love what they do!   Gena

SAILING IN THE BAHAMAS IN 2017

The Bahama Islands are a sailing paradise, easy to get to and so close to home.  It’s an incredible feeling to sail in the Sea of Abaco with the trade winds blowing, all the while tucked behind the barrier islands with calm and brilliant blue water.  There are small settlements, snug harbors and deserted white sand beaches.  It is a fantastic place to learn or upgrade skills, while chasing away the winter blahs and getting ready for the sailing season.  The 8 day live-aboard sailing class will be taught aboard a comfortable, modern sloop, and departs from Marsh Harbour.

The women-only course is April 29 through May 6, 2017.  See the Sailing Schedule Page for more details!
