Accelerated Bareboat Certification

  • Description:

Cruising can range from day sails to living aboard longer trips of several days or more, to extended sails with offshore passages. NESC developed the seven day Accelerated Bareboat Certification (ABC) course so that motivated students complete a fast track program that advances them from beginner to bareboat certification through our comprehensive course that combines all of the skill requirements for the ASA 101 Basic Keelboat, ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising and ASA 104 Bareboat Cruising certifications.

This course is structured as a combination of classroom and on the water training. You will learn on a J22 for the Basic Keelboat training and a Beneteau 39 cruising yacht for the Basic Cruising and Bareboat Cruising courses. The accelerated pace supports an immersion into the sport of sailing.

The first two days will cover sailing fundamentals and skills for Basic Keelboat with the option for ASA 101 Basic Keelboat certification. Days three and four will cover the skills for Basic Cruising with the option for ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising certification.

Completion of your training will qualify you to sail a cruising yacht up to 54 feet.

J22 Charter

The J22 or J24 are available to our Basic Keelboat graduates and qualified sailors for day charters. Charter these boats for an enjoyable day sail or to practice your sailing techniques.

The J22 and J24 are both designed and built in New England. They offer strength, stability and speed unmatched in keelboats of their size. The J22 and J24 are tiller driven to enhance the boat’s reaction time and the large rudder provides a light feel, translating into a forgiving and precise helmsmanship. The lead keel balances the sail plan and keeps the boat upright giving the boat its ultimate stability. The J22 and J24 also have a sail plan that gives the boat speed in light to medium wind but that can easily be reefed if the winds increase. The deck is completely surrounded by double lifelines and bow and stern pulpits, and all control lines are within reach of the cockpit.
