USCG licensing structure is complex, but information is available on all classes of deck licenses here: USCG Licensing

The 'Sail Endorsement' or 'Towing Endorsement' is available separately, and attaches to your master's license. The written exam for the sail endorsement is very elementary....any experienced sailor can pass it easily, and just about anyone who studies a bit can pass it even without a lot of time under sail.
