Custom Safe Powerboat Handling 

(2.5 days) N/S & OEI created this custom course for their employees to meet all of the requirements for SPH and state certification. They also wanted to include additional skills that their employees need to know to perform their duties. On day 1 we used their conference room to go over all of the classroom material. We picked up day 2 at Treasure Island Sailing Center so that we could utilize their fleet for the on-the-water portion of this class. On day 3, we were back at OEI to go over reveiw questions, take exams & then BBQ for lunch!

Private Lessons

From "oh no, she's coming", to docking with a round of applause. Marilyn bought her first boat in 2017 and realized that it wasn't just like driving a car! So, she hired us to help her be more comfortable operating her new vessel!
