Sailing Endorsement for U.S. Coast Guard Licenses (Online)
Add a sailing endorsement to your merchant mariner license!
This course is for those seeking a U.S. Coast Guard Sailing Endorsement on their Merchant Mariner credential. You do require a certain amount of time on auxiliary sail equipped vessels in order to earn this endorsement, depending on your tonnage license.
This is normally conducted in conjunction with our 100-ton classes. If you are interested in taking this class as a stand-alone offering, please contact the instructor at [email protected]
