Cruising Under Power and Sail - course


Get ready for road trips on the water. Take Cruising under Power and Sail to gain the skills and confidence you need to head out the waterways for the weekend—or weeks at a time. Prepare for cruises, raft-ups and rendezvous up the river, down the bay, along the coast and over the border.

This comprehensive online course offered by United States Power Squadrons, America’s Boating Club, includes 16 fully narrated modules and a downloadable PDF student guide, giving you total control of what and how quickly you learn.

You’ll learn about

  • Planning a cruise—choosing and equipping your boat, selecting crew and provisioning
  • Navigation—getting there, electronics and communication
  • Weather for boaters—forecasting winds and storms
  • Crossing borders—crossing international borders
  • Safety equipment and emergencies—preparing for the unexpected
  • And much more!

This course also includes an exam. America's Boating Club members who take the course and pass the online test receive the same credit as if they had taken the classroom version.  Many insurers offer savings for passing America's Boating Club courses.
