Why Santana Sailing?


Why Santana Sailing? In short, so you can learn how to do this on your own…


Building Confidence and Competence is What We Do

Benefit From High Standards

Santana Sailing is a NauticEd Sailing School, combining state of the art sail training, the highest certification standards in the business, and a guarantee of practical competency. When you earn a sailing certification at Santana Sailing, it will be because you’ve achieved real proficiency in specific skills to a measurable standard - an ANSI approved standard.

State Of The Art Knowledge Training

We use the NauticEd curriculum, an on-line training system that functions the way modern professional training is conducted in the corporate environment. Study and test through on-line, and show up at the boat ready to put it into practice. Get 2 Free Sailing Courses right here to check it out.

Expertise In Sailing AND Training

We are expert sailors with expert training methods, honed by decades of experience. That’s a rare combination. This is so much more than time on the water with your buddy who’s a great sailor, but really just wants you to crew for him. We’ll take you through a specific curriculum with a measurable outcome, and back it with Guaranteed Practical Competency.

Need Your SLC? Have Experience? Start At The Top

Lets say you want to charter in the Med this year, and you don’t have an Int’l sailing license. Maybe you took some lessons in years past but never got any certifications. But, you’ve been cruising your boat locally for years and really know your stuff. You have the skills, but as you delve into the issue, it looks like neither ASA nor US Sailing’s IPC is accepted in your destination country. It seems like a no-go for you, but…hold on…you’ve found our website.

You read this paragraph and see that we can get you your Bareboat Charter Master Certification, with Catamaran Endorsement, and SLC Mediterranean Sailing License by using the skills you have right now. Plus, we’ll teach you how to complete the Med-mooring with anchor, and make sure you can really do it.

As long as you can perform sailing skills to the standard, pass the on-line tests, document your sea time and complete all the required steps, you’re in. And the SLC is accepted throughout the Med.

It’s January. We have a real customer who wants to charter in Spain in May. We’ll get him there.

We’ll Get You Where You Want To Go

Your skills and sailing resume, plus required licenses and certifications are what enable you to charter a sailing yacht in the exotic location you’re thinking of. And, it’s your skills and resume you’ll need to join the crew crossing the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Panama Canal, or to convince the Wednesday race skipper that you can contribute in a meaningful way. Your knowledge, skills, and experience are your passport. We can help you push your limits with a safety net. We’ll help you get your passport.

Many Ways To Get It Done

In the NauticEd system, one earns a Rank by completing the on-line course work, and a Level by documenting sea time, and adds to their resume with Endorsements and Verification of Competence by an instructor. In our classes and Sailing Adventures, we conduct both the skill training, and the Endorsements and Verification of Competence.
