Some even on board an boat along with 10 or 12 other students or in a class room with 15 or 20 other students. But what if your boat (or intended boat) is larger than about 30 feet? Or if your plans involve something more intensive than the comfort of someone else's boat or a class room? traveling is expensive and time consuming, Try a more personalized approach to a boat school. Capt Bill "On The Water" training a personalized boating school will travel to you so you receive private yacht instruction aboard your yacht in your waters.

Capt Bill's clients fall into several categories:

1. New Yacht Owner: Planning a lifestyle change? Want to buy a Yacht and retire but don't have the experience? Capt. Bill will work with you and enable you and your mate to comfortably accomplish your goals.

2. Coastal/Offshore Cruising: Learn what you need to know about weather planning, navigation, crossing bars, entering foreign harbors, communications, and diesel maintenance. You and your crew will build confidence quickly.

3. Docking. Let's face it: docking is the most stressful part of operating a boat for most people. Spend a couple days with Capt. Bill and you will learn tips and tricks that few recreational boaters know - even after a lifetime of experience.

4. "Spouse." The mate of an avid boater may want to know what to do in case the captain becomes suddenly incapacitated. The benefit is that both participants have more fun as both become partners, not just skipper/mate. Whether you are novice or advanced (even Tiger Woods has a coach), have Capt. Bill help you close learning gaps.
