    Santa Barbara Island - Away From the Crowd Bareboat Charter Master and SLC Certification Available This four-day certification cruise will take you beyond Catalina to anchor at the smallest of the Channel Islands. It’s a bit more challenging than Catalina as there are no moorings, and no restaurants or stores. You’ll navigate, steer, trim, manage systems, anchor, and if conditions permit, dinghy ashore and hike around the island. We’ll spend a night on Santa Barbara Island, maybe two nights depending on conditions, and then it’s on to Catalina. Navigation skills, weather awareness, anchoring, dinghy operations, and a willingness to experience the untethered life are essential on this cruise. Conducted on a Catalina 34. You’ll work on all the skills in the Bareboat Charter Master rubrics, and you can elect to test through for the SLC Mediterranean Sailing License. This is an excellent way to venture further than most weekend cruisers do, and gain experience in self-reliant cruising. Crew complete the meal planning and provisioning (a shared expense among crew) as part of the certification. Please note, you can join the cruise just for the experience without going through the formal training and certification process. 2 double cabins and a single berth available. Pricing $2,275 per private cabin (2 pax/cabin). $1,137 single berth 8% Long Beach Harbor fee applies. 5% Loyalty discount for Santana Sailing School grads and past cruise participants. Provisioning is a shared expense among crew. Deposit is 60% at the time of booking, balance due 60 days prior to departure date. Link to more information about this Opportunity.
