Sea Sense has added single-engine trawler training on Chesapeake Bay from Annapolis, MD. These new courses are both the traditional scheduled classes for women as well as customized instructional charters for couples, families, and groups. Training is conducted aboard a new, 47-foot Selene trawler, fully equipped from galley to flybridge with every modern amenity. You can read about the specific trawler in an earlier article we wrote here. Students will be exposed to the most modern systems and equipment, including bow and stern thrusters, sophisticated electronics, and an engine room layout ideal for identifying and understanding boat systems.
Captain Patti Moore, co-founder of Sea Sense says, “These training classes are unique in that they offer potential trawler enthusiasts the opportunity to gain sufficient knowledge to confidently bareboat charter or to handle their own boat.”
Sea Sense-scheduled, women-only courses have a cruising curriculum that covers everything from boat-handling to confidence-building exercises. These are 5-day, 4-night classes scheduled monthly from May through October. As an incentive to fill the first season, the all-inclusive cost has been reduced to $3895 per person.
Instructional charters aboard the Selene are ideal for couples, families and groups and are customized to meet individual needs, calendars and cruising goals. They can also be scheduled from May through October. Sea Sense instructors are also available to teach aboard your own yacht (power or sail).
