My wife and I are taking a course this summer 7days/6 nights in the San Juans. We will be taking the courses for certification up to and including Bareboat: Basic Keel boat 101, Coastal crusing 103 and Bareboat Chartering 104 . The course we are taking has a lot of up front study as the school expects that we will have the basic knowledge BEFORE we show up
Texts: Sailing Fundamentals By Jobson; Cruising Fundamentals and Annapolis Book of Seamanship
We study as many Sundays as we can for at least 2-3 hours. It will take some committment on your part but it is doable.
Good Luck and Happy Sailing
