Cruising and Cruise Planning

Event Phone: (832) 512-9582

This class covers the Cruising and Cruise Planning Course.

This is a great “first course” to take.  It will be taught on the listed schedule.  This class is predominately done as a teleconference.  The first dates are instruction, followed by an overall review, and finally the exam.  If you cannot make it to one or more of the instruction dates, you should be okay.  The course typically takes 10 weeks of instruction and review and will help you prepare for the upcoming boating and local cruising season!  Please plan on attending the cruise presentations, review and exam date, as they must be done in person (typically 1-day at Home Port).
