In this course you will get the unique opportunity to leave your ability to see land behind, and begin to appreciate how much of our planet is occupied by water. This exciting offshore program is the perfect way to give this style of cruising a test drive. For some, it sets the wheels in motion for a lifetime of seamanship and exploration, and for other is s a special once in a lifetime experience.
Sailors will get to experience first-hand the unblemished beauty of the Western Coastline of Vancouver Island with the addition of sailing beyond the sight of land.
The 14 day format is unique as it allows individuals who wish to complete both their Advanced and Offshore programs back to back in one journey. This program is a combined bundle involving the full curriculum for both levels. Program departs and returns to Vancouver.
Like the LEVEL THREE – ADVANCED PASSAGEMAKER, this course will be carried out on Alegria X, a fine vessel for such a wondrous journey.
