Broadreach College offers this course that puts students at the helm – of a 50-foot boat, the journey, the crew and most of all, the overall experience. Learn basic seamanship, navigation and more as you sail 500 nautical miles, past fifteen Caribbean islands. Sail through the night on 80-mile, 15-hour jaunts. Learn and practice Theories of Risk Management, effective leadership, group dynamics, problem solving and decision-making. A large portion of the program lies in the hands of the students themselves. Each student leads a segment, plans passages, maintains a budget, and guides discussion. No Guilford faculty.
