October 103-104 Cruise

Maryland School of Sailing and Seamanship
Cruise Report

ASA 103 – 104 Basic and Intermediate Cruising/Bareboat Chartering Class, October 4 – 11, 2008

Student Crew:
Robert deGroof
Ellen deGroof
Kevin Daylor
Charles Davis

David Appleton

This turned out to be an example of our typical 103-104 class preparing novice sailors for the demands of bare boat chartering. We spent the first 3 days fulfilling the requirements and learning the skills outlined in the ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising course before embarking on a 5 day cruise mastering skills of the 104 Bareboat Chartering Course. This seemed to be a very satisfying experience for the crew and instructor alike. For the full report, see the Coastal Cruising reports on our website: http://www.mdschool.com/Reports-2008/Chesapeake/index08.htm

I noticed that Ellen D and her husband were aboard your 103-104 class.... I sailed with Ellen in my 101 class and had a blast.... I can well imagine how much fun your class was.... Good sailing to all...
