Combo Courses

Combining two programs into one fun-filled week of learning allows you to receive certification in two areas while immersing yourself into the sailing lifestyle.

Spend 6 days and 5 nights learning to sail the Atlantic Ocean. Depending on your chosen courses, you will be spending your nights aboard either at our marina, at anchor, or docked at Bald Head Island Marina (a 25 to 30 mile ocean sail). Upon completion of one of our combo courses, you will have the knowledge to skipper or crew a sailboat safely in the ocean, along the coast during the day, in moderate winds up to 20 knots.

2 student limit per class, unless family (4ppl max), allowing you more time sailing.

All courses require a non-refundable $150 per student deposit. Once received, all instructional materials will be mailed to you.

Private lessons are available for an additional $300 per course.

Each individual and combination course, with the exception of ASA105 Coastal Navigation, is flexible schedule based, allowing us the freedom to schedule our classes based on your needs.
