NauticEd Sailing Certification
We offer sailing certification through NauticEd.org, “The worlds most advanced sailing education and sailing certification program.” A globally recognized sailing accreditation program. After completing the online course, our instructor will sail with you through the practical exercises and sign off in your online logbook.
The NauticEd Certification takes advantage of the power of the internet. It helps students track their actual time spent on the water, which is where real hands-on learning takes place. The more time spent on the water, the more experience earn making a more capable sailor. This is why for example the United States Coast Guard requires 1 years’ worth of time spent on boats as well as extensive theory test out before one can attain a USCG professional captain’s license. NauticEd has taken a similar theory PLUS experience approach and added in an optional proficiency test by an accredited school:
Students graduate through the Ranks by the theory courses they have taken and passed.
Students move through the “Levels” of Rank by the experience they have gained on the water.

1 student $400, for first day, each day there after $300,
