How to Qualify for a Passage

The more you know, the more you'll get out of your passage with Adventure Sailing.

No offshore experience is required, but if you have it, we will help you hone your skills.

In order to get the most out of your time at sea with us you should possess basic sailing skills such as how to "hand, reef, and steer." Especially, you should know how to steer a compass course. Most of our time at sea we won't be using the autopilot. Sitting in the cockpit watching "Otto" steer the boat does nothing to hone your skills, but steering in waves certainly does!
