ASA 114 – Catamaran Cruising

watch captain asa 104This course helps prepare you with first-hand, onboard, experiences that prepare you to skipper an auxiliary-powered sailing cruising catamaran of approximately 30 to 45 feet in length during a multi-day liveaboard cruise upon inland or coastal waters in moderate to heavy winds (up to 30 knots) and sea conditions. Knowledge of catamaran structure, components and features, performance under sail and power, boat systems, seamanship and safety, heavy weather operation, and emergency response are included.    The course is taught on board and you will rotate between the duties and responsibilities of skipper, lookout, navigator, and crew.

This course is offered over 3 days with one overnight at anchor and one night at a destination marina.  There are 3 cabins available for this course which may be occupied by 1 or 2 people each.  Pricing is dependent on cabin occupancy (single or couple).
