School Anyone? Ladies Only in Ireland

School Anyone?  Ladies Only in Ireland

Sea Sense has been offering sailing and power boating instruction primarily to women boaters since 1989. This Florida school offers classes worldwide on charter boats as well as privately owned boats.  Early on, the company integrated international offerings into its courses and has taught throughout the Caribbean and in Italy, Greece, France, and Tahiti. Each year a different international course is offered and in 2010, Sea Sense will teach an all-women course on board a modern, 48-foot canal barge in Ireland along the Shannon River from Sept. 11-18.

The boat travels through the Irish countryside that is home to ancient Celtic monasteries. Each evening will be spent tied along the canal in picturesque village ports with hospitable people and warm pubs for dinner and music.

This is a great way for women to become comfortable with boat handling, navigation, and routine boat maintenance while getting to experience a great travel experience in a beautiful environment.  The course will focus on chart reading, helmsmanship, hands-on maneuvering and docking, knot tying and proper line handling, and basic engine checks and troubleshooting.

The course is open to women of any level of boating skill.  Here’s a way to improve your boating confidence and get a vacation at the same time.

    I’ve heard of this school from an old college friend. She took a class there a few years ago and absolutely raved about the experience.
