HANDS-ON BOATING CLINICS

There is nothing more valuable than hands-on training to make you a better, safer, and more confident boater! Take the helm of a powerboat or sailboat with a professional USCG-licensed captain who will lead you through engaging clinics and give you strategies to help improve your confidence and ability and make your time on the water fun. All experience levels are welcome. You will never feel pressured to buy a boat because Confident Captain instructors are professional captains, not boat salesmen. The courses are offered all four days of the Newport Boat Show for both powerboat and sailboat and are open to all boat show attendees. We recommend registering online in advance as these courses are limited and sell out quickly. See below for more details.

Join Pam Wall, a world-renowned cruising-lifestyle expert in discussing various topics from Hurricane Preparation In Port, Outfitting your Sailboat For Blue Water Cruising to tips on navigating the Atlantic Circle From Florida to Europe. The seminars are free with a boat-show admission ticket.
