Learn to Sail
Progressive education using modern technology
Learn to sail with our accredited sailing education program through NauticEd. Unlike any other program offered in the market today, the NauticEd curriculum and licensure process adheres to the U.S. Coast Guard approved American National Standard for sailing.
Whether you are new to sailing, a current or future boat owner, or an experienced mariner looking to take your skills to the next level, Bluesail's training clinics have you covered.
Competence vs. Certifications
While certifications are helpful, as a sailor what really are you looking to accomplish? Are you looking to increase your competency and knowledge, or pass a test to obtain a certificate?
Bluesail combines online theory-based coursework with customized practical on-the-water training to create a comprehensive sailing resume that meets the requirements of insurance underwriters and bareboat charter operators around the world. Most importantly though, our step-based approach to learning ensures you achieve a level of competency necessary so you, your friends, and family can safely enjoy being out on the water.
