Advanced Sailing Courses and
We include adventures because at least 75 percent of our Advanced
Coastal Cruising graduates take the course a second, third or even a
fourth time . . . not because the graduates don't pass, but because the
course is a great challenge and "fun". Bareboat graduates charter their
own boats either from us (the same boats you've been trained on) or
through Northern Breezes' Charter Brokerage Service in the Caribbean or
other beautiful locations.
This is the second part of a two-part certification
program. This is a three-day live-aboard course normally held on a 34-36'
cruising auxiliary sailboat on Lake Superior. Students learn to maneuver the boat under power, dock,
anchor, and navigate in differing weather conditions. Successful candidates
will receive bareboat charter certification upon completion. Instructors are
ASA certified as well as U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains.
|Advanced Coastal Cruising
This is one of our favorite
courses because it brings together everything you've learned before plus
many new items such as night sailing and the rigors of a twenty four
hour transit at a much higher level. This course teaches more advanced
skills for the sailor with cruising experience. This is a four or five day live
aboard course held on a cruising auxiliary sailboat.
This is an advanced cruising course for
sailors with cruising experience. Graduates are certified to act as
skipper and crew of a 30-50 foot multihull sailboat by day in
coastal waters. Students will learn all aspects of
skippering a cruising catamaran.
Are you an experienced bareboat
skipper? Then set sail on a custom yacht of your choosing. You will be
accompanied by a lead boat with a professional captain, technician and
host from Northern Breezes. The lead boat will act as your event
organizer, guide and support team. Are you new to sailing or
lacking a full crew? Join the crew of the lead boat or another boat
captained by a U.S. Coast Guard-licensed Captain. These four to seven day
adventures include a fun mix of organized and informal activities
including skipper briefings each morning, dining aboard and dining
onshore and other group activities while carving out some private time.
Instructor Qualification Clinic
A very special group of sailors have the passion to share their
knowledge and love of sailing with others through sailing
instruction. In the past, a good sailor became a Sailing
Instructor simply by beginning to teach and declaring
himself or herself an instructor.
The American Sailing Association was organized to establish
national standards for sailing instructor certification in the
United States. We take experienced instructors and expert sailors
and give them the tools they need to become certified sailing
instructors. Every sailing instructor regales about how much
better sailors they have become after doing the clinic and teaching.
