Course Description

There is  something very special about the thrill of cruising in new waters and the sense  of accomplishment upon completing an extended cruise. To go beyond what most  boaters do on a weekend overnight or even a week or so marina hopping requires  boaters to leave their normal cruising areas and comfort zones. The Cruise  Planning course focuses on the planning and preparation necessary for safe  enjoyable extended cruises on both inland and coastal waters.

Designed for members who cruise on either a sail or powerboat (owned  or chartered)—this course covers the following topics:

  • Cruise preparation and  planning – General
  • Boat and Equipment
  • Anchors and Anchoring
  • Security
  • Chartering
  • Cruising Outside the United  States
  • Crew and Provisioning
  • Voyage Management
  • Communications
  • Navigation
  • Weather
  • Emergencies

The manual  includes a comprehensive cruise planning timeline. The course can be  comfortably taught in eight two-hour classroom sessions including time for  review and the exam, but each instructor will determine the pace of the course.

Course completion is documented by a closed book exam graded by USPS Headquarters.
