Become an Advanced Sailor on Lake Superior
The Advanced Sailing Course is a five-day sailing class designed to create more competent, confident sailors. Improve your sailing skills and experience night sailing, standing watches and sailing offshore in varying weather conditions.
Everyone is involved in planning the passage. The instructor reviews navigation procedures, use of charts, dead reckoning, radar, and GPS in an easy to understand and relaxed environment. This exciting adventure covers over 200 nautical miles (weather depending) with destinations such as Isle Royale National Park, Keweenaw Peninsula, and Grand Marais, MN.
Our Advanced Sailing Certification class takes place on 39′ – 44′ boats which serve as your classroom and overnight accommodations. You spend the night prior to the first day of instruction sleeping onboard the boat in the harbor (complimentary boarding). You’ll spend all other nights at anchor or at other ports with the instructor aboard. There are heads and a galley on all boats. Bring a sleeping bag or bedding and towels.
