By and for women! This program provides two unique days of education: it’s led by Behan Gifford,
who has circumnavigated with her family and extensively cruised North America’s coastline. She
shares a wealth of knowledge about the cruising life, and is bringing in a range of guest speakers
with additional cruising expertise – including YouTube sailing celeb Megan O’Kelly, and
Fit2Sail/TBG podcast’s Nica Waters.
Are you prepared to cruise? Behan and her invited guests will answer that and many other
questions with understanding, patience and enthusiasm. They’ll fill in the gaps on how to
successfully embark on the cruising life. This is primarily a classroom course, but also includes time
aboard a docked boat to facilitate discussion of equipment, layout, and safety. You can ASK
ANYTHING in this safe space!
The topics include:
An introduction to cruising: with a partner, alone, or with family
What to expect for a day on passage, a day coastal cruising, and a day in port
Ways to build plan to meet skills and tasks to successfully depart
Demystifying equipment and jargon
Facing fears, breaking them down and forging ahead
The Cruising Women program is part of the Master Series Package at Cruisers University. In
