A fantastic transitional course to seamlessly take a sailor from monohull to catamaran. For those that have completed 101 & 103 or for those with a good sailing background and are competent with the standards posted in the 101 and 103 courses.
Taught entirely on a cruising catamaran, the cruising portion of this course (ASA 104) covers cruise planning, mechanical and electrical systems, advanced anchoring techniques, more in-depth navigation, heavy weather tactics as well as the live aboard experience. The Catamaran portion of this course (ASA 114) covers docking and harbor handling in a wide, twin engine cat, tacking, jibing, sailing tactics and other aspects that make a catamaran different from a monohull. This is the course to prepare you for that bareboat charter in the Caribbean or for further cruising on your own boat.
$3975 includes private boat, instructor, books and certifications for up to 4 students. Additional students may be added for private courses at $195 per student.
Prerequisites are 101 and 103 or equivalent experience.
Available dates: May 22-26 & June 27-July 1. (Our season typically runs from the beginning of May to the first week of October. Contact us for additional dates that might not be posted here.)
