This course puts you at the helm – of the boat, the journey, your crew and most of all, your overall experience. Learn basic seamanship, navigation and more as you sail 500 nautical miles past fifteen Caribbean islands. Sail through the night on 80-mile, 15-hour jaunts. Learn and practice theories of risk management, effective leadership, group dynamics, problem solving and decision-making. A large portion of the program lies in the hands of you and your crew. You, and each member of your team, will lead a segment, plan passages, maintain a budget and guide discussion.
