The certifications that you can earn at the end of each class are a great way for you to take what you have learned with you, and verify your skills through US SAILING.  You will be able to use these certifications as a path toward chartering a sailboat in an exotic location.

This package is an opportunity unlike any other allowing you to get the most out of our classes at an affordable, unbeatable price.  Let us help you obtain these sailing certifications and your lifelong dream of being able to sail anywhere in the world!
