ABOUT THE CATAMARAN OR MONOHULL REFRESHER COURSE CURRICULUM
This course is a skills-based review that covers all or part of what is taught and learned in Offshore Sailing School’s Live Aboard Cruising and Bareboat Charter Certification courses. Your instructor will rapidly assess the confidence and skill level of all graduates in the course – through conversation, observation and stated needs or goals. With a maximum of four or five students per refresher course (depending on boat type), this is a highly individualized program. All students will be asked to bring their logbook and the textbooks received in previous Offshore Sailing School cruising courses for our refresher catamaran or monohull sailing classes.
