You have the dream, you have the boat, you’ve explored your home waters, maybe you’ve even cruised beyond Desolation Sound or down the Pacific coast. Now, how do you prepare yourself for stepping beyond coastal cruising? How do you know you are actually ready to go offshore? Lin will discuss vital topics to help you feel confident crossing oceans. Storm tactics and preparing for storms will be covered, along with the attitudes, preparation, and gear you’ll need to ensure failures don’t derail your plans. Discussions of often-overlooked aspects of offshore voyaging, like ensuring you and your crew can get enough sleep, will provide plenty of food for thought. This course will encourage you to make that leap so you can experience the adventure of crossing oceans.
The seminar is divided into three sections:
  • Ensuring you are ready to transition from coastal cruising to crossing oceans
  • Making your boat unstoppable
  • Preparing for and handling storms at sea
