Night Sailing Demystified


Date: Thursday, August 5th, 2021
Time: 4:30 PM PDT/ 7:30 PM EDT
Duration: 90 Min

This course is designed for sailors ready to expand their cruising horizons. Explore beyond your home waters or the geographic confines of a bareboat charter, or simply continue a beautiful day’s sailing well past sunset.  Perhaps you’d like to participate in an overnight sailing race! Sailing at night saves time and money on coastal passages, and it’s a necessity when sailing offshore.  Yet for many sailors, the prospect of sailing at night can be daunting. Ocean passagemakers and coastal cruisers, Captains Andy and Lisa will help to demystify night sailing by sharing tips and techniques to make sailing at night both safe and enjoyable.

ASA Members can save an additional 20% OFF!
