Own Boat Tuition
We recommend this if
you intend to purchase or already have your own vessel. Before
instruction can begin, the instructor must insure that the boat is in
sound condition and is adequately equipped both for safety and effective
instruction. Many of our existing clients have found that having a
course structured around their particular vessel and equipment will give
them more confidence in their cruising ability.
