- Guests meet the Instructor around 10.00 a.m. on the first day at the course at the Barefoot base in Blue Lagoon
- The 6 days are spent consolidating sailing skills, anchoring techniques, navigation, Rules of the Road, and basic maintenance skills, whilst sailing through a stunning cruising ground with beautiful anchorages and plenty of opportunity to explore ashore.
- We provide pretty well everything you’ll need including food for most meals. Students are expected to share in meal preparation and clean-up duties. You just need to pack a few clothes – a swimsuit, your sandals, a rain-jacket and perhaps a light pullover for the night sails.
- Added expenses include the cost of a few evening meals which can be taken ashore, course textbooks, drinks, Customs clearance fees, National Parks Permits and mooring fees (if required), and the ASA examination fees.
- Most of the boats in our fleet range in length from 34’ to 50’. Our Advanced Offshore Courses normally take place on a monohull in the 40-to-50 foot range, but on occasion may be delivered on a catamaran.
- During the 6 days your instructor will cover the curriculum for ASA 106 certification: Advanced Coastal Cruising Certificate
