Telling friends about dream destinations you’ll sail to is easy. Stepping up to the deep end of the
pool – passage departure – is a less easy reality with stress and tough decisions. Poor route
planning can lead to uncomfortable, slower than expected, and riskier passages. There are a
surprising number of recent examples of beat-up or lost boats due to poor route planning. Learn
how to prepare for a cruising season, pre-passage planning, and conditional changes underway. In
this class we’ll cover methods, techniques, tools for a safer and more efficient trip down the coast or
across an ocean.
