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.
