Upon completion of this four-day on-the-water course, students will be able to cruise safely in familiar waters as both skipper and crew of a sloop-rigged keelboat of 6 to 10 meters with an outboard motor in moderate wind and sea conditions by day. The focus of this standard is on the development of basic sailing and seamanship skills as well the knowledge needed to make the decisions expected of a skipper. Basic boating skills are developed under sail and power with a focus on operating the vessel as both crew and skipper. Individuals with minimal practical on-water experience should consider completing the Start Keelboat Sailing Standard before attempting this training.
