Intermediate Coastal Cruising

 

This class is for graduates of the Basic Coastal Cruising program who want to qualify to charter 30 to 32 foot sailboats at Spinnaker Sailing. The course gives students an opportunity to take a mid-size sailboat on an overnight cruise. Classes run Saturday and Sunday, 9-5 and are typically held aboard 31 to 32 foot cruising sailboats. Classes are held on the north side of San Francisco Bay (Angel Island, Treasure Island, etc.) where students make confidence-building leadership decisions on docking and sailing in the Bay's challenging conditions. To qualify for the class, students must have already achieved ASA Basic Coastal Cruising certification, and must have at least 8 days' sailing experience as skipper of a 22-29 foot boat.

ASA Intermediate Coastal Cruising (Bareboat Charter) certification is awarded upon successful completion of the on-water and written portions of this course; graduates will be certified to sail 30-32 foot yachts in San Francisco Bay. At more-sedate locations outside the Bay, ICC-certified sailors may be permitted to charter larger boats, up to 50'.
