Sea Sense, the sailing school for women, has chosen the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas as the location for its April 6 to 12, 2008, liveaboard sailing course. Sailors of all ages and levels are invited to participate.
The week will be spent aboard a modern 40-foot sloop, and subjects covered will include seamanship, sail trim, navigation, engine maintenance, docking, and man-overboard drills. The course is taught by Coast-Guard licensed women and emphasizes the skills necessary for bareboat chartering and passagemaking.
The cost of $2,750 includes accommodations, all classes, and most meals. Space is limited, so don’t delay. For more information, consult the company’s website (www.seasenseboating.com).
