Sailing Skill Clinics
Focused Skill Training
Here we offer focused skill training in special areas for more experienced sailors. This is an opportunity to get really good at your chosen skill.
You’ll work on new and innovative methods that most sailors don’t learn for years and might never learn at all through their own trial and error. Scroll down for more about the How and Why of these Sailing Skill Endorsements
Sailing Skill Clinics and the endorsements are also available on our off-shore Sailing Adventures.

Skill Clinics- How and Why
First off, it is your practical skills and your resume that will get you wherever you want to go in the world of sailing. When you participate in these clinics, you will receive a skill endorsement that shows on your on-line resume with NauticEd. That’s how you impress the charter company or the yacht captain you want to do that delivery with.
This is sail training to the third power: you’ll get coaching, powerful short cuts, and gain proficiency from an expert sailor who is also an expert trainer. Your growth in sailing skills is assured. During more than two decades of instruction we’ve been able to determine the best methods to perform these skills and the best ways to teach them - because we’ve seen everything imaginable go wrong a hundred different ways.
As a result, we can show you the tricks of the trade, teach you what works, AND, let you make the mistakes you need to in order to really learn - with the instructor right there to catch you. That’s a win, all the way around.
