About this Course

This instructor course combines foundational leadership training within the context of a sailing expedition in the Sea of Cortez of Baja California Sur.

Priorities for this course include emphasis on sailing techniques and theory, teaching the NOLS leadership curriculum, risk management in a group setting, and building an inclusive and positive course culture. This course will build on the outdoor and education experience you already have, while allowing you to fine-tune your teaching and leadership skills.

Successful completion of the instructor course will prepare you to work Drascombe Longboat sailing courses for NOLS.
