Focused Skill Training

Here we offer focused skill training in special areas for both the new and experienced sailor. This is an opportunity to get really good at say, Maneuvering Under Power, or Crew Overboard Rescue Maneuvers, and many other skill sets. You’ll work on new and innovative methods that most sailors don’t learn for years and years, and might never learn at all through their own trial and error.

We’ve seen everything you can imagine go wrong a hundred different ways. As a result, we’ve been able to determine the best methods to perform these skills and the best ways to teach them. This experience enables us to help you in two essential ways:

  • First, we'll show you the tricks of the trade.

  • Second, we’ll let you make the mistakes you need to make in order to learn, in a safe environment.

You’ll get the keys to the castle, and a professional coach to show you how the magic works. Upon completion, the Sailing Skill Endorsement will show on your online NauticEd Resume for every charter company to see.

Training may be conducted locally in LA/Long Beach, Newport Beach, or as a part of one of our Sail Training Adventures. See below for the list of endorsements.
