Sailboat cruising offers sailors a chance to enjoy their friends and family, apply their sailing and seamanship skills and quite literally expand their horizons.

Cruising involves many elements, all of which are important to your safety, comfort and enjoyment.

Learn everything from proper seamanship, organization and planning tips, safety gear and procedures, and more through US Sailing’s instructional courses and publications, like Basic Cruising and Bareboat Cruising.

These courses are the national standard for quality sailing instruction in the U.S.
