Location notes: We live in Hout Bay and are happy to train on your boat in Hout Bay or Cape Town. I am a fully qualified NauticEd instructor. I do not have a commercially endorsed SAMSA license and do not have a commercially licensed boat, thus I am not allowed to charge a fee for my services. I am happy to teach you out of my own passion and only ask that you carry the expenses.

The NauticEd online sailing courses supplement practical training performed by a sailing school. With NauticEd, you can take as long as you need to complete a sailing course, take the tests as many times as you like and review the content for life.

Your sailing school instructor will digitally sign off on your sailing certification when you pass your practical hands-on sailing training. Your sailing certificate is then updated in real-time for you to print out and hang with pride on your office wall. Each time you pass another sailing course, your sailing certificate is automatically updated.
