Required Reading Materials

The following textbooks are required reading and are not included with the purchase of your course. Both are available on Amazon and other online booksellers.

  • Chapman Piloting and Seasonmanship 68th Edition
  • Homeland Security / US Coast Guard Navigation Rules and Regulations Handbook 

The table below provides an overview of class dates and times for both the spring and fall sessions. To help accomodate busy professionals, our fall session offers evening classes. The 100 Ton Masters course material and class dates overlap both the OUPV and 100 Ton Upgrade, so they are combined and taught concurrently in a single classroom.

Testimonials

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.
