More than 70 classes are available for sailors and power boaters alike who have an interest in learning the fundamentals of blue water cruising.

The Cruisers University curriculum addresses a complete range of cruising topics for all levels and experience to help you prepare to live aboard a boat and begin your boating adventures with confidence. From cruising the Chesapeake Bay to coastal waterways, or circumnavigating the globe, our experienced instructors have been there and done it. 

Some examples of our classes include marine weather forecasting, traditional navigation techniques, diesel maintenance, heavy weather sailing, electrical systems and much much more!
