When you get a certification from 3rd Coast, you are not only getting documentation that states you are capable, most importantly, you are getting the hands-on experience you need to ensure that you truly are a capable and competent sailor/skipper. Our certified skippers are capable of handling just about any situation that arises because they have accumulated massive amounts of seatime and hands-on experience with the added bonus of Off-Season Training where they learned technical troubleshooting of all systems on a sailboat.
