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
- Cruising Outside the United States
- Crew and Provisioning
- Voyage Management
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.
