At this point, you have the rudiments of boat handling and basic navigation in hand. Now it is time for you to enhance and expand those skills with instruction on boat handling, navigation and systems so that you are comfortable and capable with longer charters and bigger vessels. This Level Two program, in the 5-day format, is about exploring a little further away and experiencing adventure.
“Days were filled with the exhilaration of sailing, wonderful scenery, interesting new places to visit and the tranquility of mooring in quiet harbours and coves.” Reidun Eggen for THE PROVINCE newspaper
This program is essential for those looking to take charge of piloting a vessel into unfamiliar territory using more techniques and resources.
