Fast Track Catamaran
USA - Chesapeake Bay
6 nights (Sun - Sat)
ASA 101, 103, 104 & 114; or IYT
Each ASA level has a written exam with continuous practical assessment.
The Fast-track Live Aboard Bareboat Cruising course combines the ASA courses 101, 103 and 104 to become a certified skipper in a limited time frame. Successfully completing this course will result in an ASA certification to skipper catamaran up to 45 feet in length during a multi-day cruise.
Ever dreamed of learning to sail at an accelerated pace so that your next time out could be chartering a yacht as captain?
Students who complete this course often have some time on the water, but have no qualifications. The only prerequisite for completing the Fast-track Catamaran Cruising is that you study the course material before you arrive so that more time can be focused on the practical side of things.
This course is by far our most popular course as it quickly progresses novices and gives you experience of all aspects of sailing whilst sailing around the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.
On day one you will meet your instructor onboard your boat for the week and after settling in and a safety brief you will set off to your first evening destination. Each day after you will get into the routine of doing a little classroom theory in the mornings followed by practical sailing as you navigate safely around the bay. On the Saturday morning you return to base for the final debrief, graduation and your final goodbyes with, hopefully, your captain badge!
