Bluewater cruising seminars in 2020 © noonsite.com

Combining classroom lectures with group discussions and one-on-one interaction with speakers and fellow students, World Cruising Club's seminars share knowledge from those who have 'been there and done it'.

Whilst attendees may come away with a longer list of boat jobs, these preparatory seminars will most definitely provide lots of answers, useful tips and save valuable time and money.

Topics range from weather to offshore communications, rigging to safety equipment, power generation to medical kits and many more essential themes to help you prepare for a happy life afloat.
