'The Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship'    .

Navigation class -  .. .  
If you are within reach of the Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship near Annapolis, and want to start ocean cruising, there could be no better way of making sure your skills are up to it before you go than taking one of their ocean courses. You'll even get a certificate to show your level of competency - great if you are volunteering to crew on others' boats.

The School's ocean Captains are true yachtmasters with many years of ocean sailing experience on boats under 100 feet and with with USCG Ocean Master licensing. This is no sitting classroom study either - you'll be out cruising and learning hands-on.

Hands-on means hands-on -  .. .  
What you'll learn:
Learn ocean cruise planning, equipment preparations, emergency & heavy weather procedures, onboard watch procedures, log keeping, celestial navigation and route strategies, weather analysis, port-entry from the sea and more while sailing to distant locations by Blue Water Open Ocean routes.

Included is a two day preparation seminar on the boat for the entire crew you'll be sailing with. ASA Offshore Passagemaking Certification (ASA108) available for students holding prerequisite ASA certifications.

A Professional US Coast Guard Licensed Captain with ASA Instructor Certifications will skipper the Island Packet yacht for these training cruises. Dates listed below include a two day preparatory seminar on the boat for the entire crew that you'll be sailing with.
