LEARN THE PRACTICAL BOATING SKILLS NEEDED FOR A WEEKEND OR LONGER CRUISE AT THE ONLINE “CRUISING AND CRUISE PLANNING” COURSE, CONDUCTED BY AKRON SAIL & POWER SQUADRON

Akron Sail & Power Squadron (ASPS) will conduct the “CRUISING AND CRUISE PLANNING” course starting Tuesday, March 21. The class will be online and held on Tuesday and Thursday nights for three weeks:
• Tuesday March 21, 7-9 PM
• Thursday March 23, 7-9 PM
• Tuesday March 28, 7-9 PM
• Thursday March 30, 7-9 PM
• Tuesday April 4, 7-9 PM

Novice and experienced boaters alike will gain the confidence and practical boating skills needed to explore ports and coves for a weekend or longer cruise.

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 Cruising and 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
We are also planning guest speakers with various cruising experiences.
