NEW FOR 2016!! April 13-14, 2016 Wednesday & Thursday from 9AM to 5PM. Keep reading to learn why you want to be a part of this....

Building Cruising Confidence (Limit: 10 students) Captains Chris and Alyse Caldwell, a husband-and-wife team of cruising coaches, lead a two day jam-packed cruisers' orientation, offering tricks and tips on vessel preparation, safety and trip planning with an emphasis on teamwork.

Each crew member will be given the opportunity to walk in the deck shoes of both the "captain" and "first mate." Training includes lively discussions, hands-on prep work and a below-deck systems preview over two days, first in the classroom and then on a featured vessel docked in the boat show marina.

Additionally you will practice effective communication skills with crew as well as use the VHF radio. Your coaches will make navigation easy to understand and you will apply it using paper charts, GPS and radar. They'll take the mystery out of overnight anchoring, sharing fundamental anchor theory as you lower and raise an anchor from the pulpit using a windlass.

You will learn proper line handling, tips on close-quarters maneuvers and docking procedures as all types of boats come and go in the marina. Captains Chris and Alyse will also show you how the training vessel's generator helps transition from shore power to ship power. They will share what works in the real world...and sometimes what doesn't.

Please note: While we will bring all systems to life in the featured vessel, we will not leave the dock during this two-day session.

Advanced registration required - $295 per person. Lunch included.

This training seminar is located within the GulfCoast Yacht & Boat Show in Gulfport MS.
