Advanced Sailing Lessons
Advanced sailing lessons are offered by Fair Wind Sailing School in the Virgin Islands, Chesapeake Bay and Lake Erie. We offer advanced sailing lessons in a one week program combining ICSO's Coastal Navigation and Advanced Sailing courses. These advanced sailing lessons are in the format of a one-week, extended live-aboard cruise. During that time, we will cover all the elements of coastal navigation in a detailed manner. The intent is to develop the charting and plotting skills required to sail extended cruisies. The curriculum has been recently updated to also include an introcuction to electronic navigation.
We will also develop our advanced sailing skills and knowledge, such as: night time sailing, night time man-over-board drills, and extended sailing. The trip includes a long passage, typoically 25-50 miles by day and another 25-50 miles by night. Along the way we will hone our navigational skills, perform night-time MOB drills and sail in shfts.
For 2012, our Caribbean advanced sailing lessons will include trips form St Thomas to either Anegada, BVI or Culebra, Spanish Virgin Islands.
