Couples focused Private Sailing Courses...

Sailing is often romanticized as a serene and adventurous pastime, but for couples learning to sail together, it can also present unique challenges. 

While sailing offers an unparalleled opportunity for couples to bond and explore, it requires teamwork, communication, and adaptability.

Having had many many couples in their sailing certification courses over the years and as a sailing couple themselves, John and Amber Ensley fully understand the challenges couples may encounter when learning to sail together and can help with a range of strategies for overcoming them.

In addition to learning to sail, we can also help with effective communication, resolving conflicts around roles and responsibilities, managing fear, stress and anxiety, building trust and teamwork, embracing adventure, and much more.

Learning to sail as a couple is not just about mastering sailing skills; it’s also about embarking on an adventure together, strengthening your bond, and creating lifelong memories. 

Learning to sail as a couple can be one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences of your life.

From communication breakdowns to managing stress and navigating adverse weather, couples may encounter obstacles that test their patience, resilience, and teamwork.

By addressing these challenges head-on, communicating openly, and supporting each other through highs and lows, couples can strengthen their bond and enjoy a lifetime of adventures on the water.

Family Focused Private Sailing Certification Courses

Learning to sail as a family is not without its challenges, but the rewards far outweigh the obstacles. From coordination and safety concerns to building resilience and adaptability, sailing offers valuable lessons that bring families closer together.

We’ve had many many families on our courses over the years and can help with strategies for teamwork and coordination, defining roles and responsibilities, effective communication, managing fear, anxiety and stress and much more.

Despite the challenges it may present, learning to sail as a family offers a wealth of rewards that extend far beyond the confines of the boat. 

Sailing encourages quality time spent together, away from the distractions of modern life, fostering deeper connections and cherished memories that will last a lifetime. It instills a sense of adventure and curiosity in children, sparking an interest in exploration and a love for the natural world.

Whether exploring local waterways or embarking on extended voyages, the rewards of family sailing are as diverse and abundant as the seas themselves.

American Sailing (ASA) Sailing Certification Courses...

We are and will continue to be active ASA sailing instructors. 

While we firmly believe you just can’t beat a NauticEd – Cruise-n-Learn Sailing combination, we also understand that there may be a reason to pursue American Sailing certifications.

We have relationships with a number of ASA affiliate schools and can run private, 1-week Cruise-n-Learn Sailing Adventures with an ASA focused curriculum for those aspiring sailors that want or need it. 

Included as part of any of our programs, we can also completely train and prepare you to “challenge” the ASA 104, Bareboat Course, through any ASA affiliate school (we can refer you if needed). Having taught hundreds of students this exact ASA course for years, we are confident we can prepare you to easily pass a ASA 104 Bareboat challenge.

A “challenge” consists of passing a 100 question written knowledge, theory and basic chart plotting examination and then demonstrating skills proficiency on the water with an ASA instructor. Once passed, you will receive all three core ASA certification stickers for your ASA logbook (ASA 101-104).
