The USCG Auxiliary's Sailing Skills and Seamanship Course (SS&S) is a fun and educational course for beginning sailors and for experienced sailors who wish to hone their sailing skills. Students will build the skills and confidence that will serve as the foundation for a lifetime of sailing enjoyment. It uses a well illustrated text to introduce fledgling sailors to the equipment, nomenclature and safe operation of sailboats. Each of the text's chapters has review questions and there is an extensive glossary and index. The course has its own exam and certificate of accomplishment.

The course is taught entirely in the classroom. No on-the-water training is provided.

Flotilla 6-7' s Sailing Skills and Seamanship Course is offered in conjunction with the NASBLA approved America's Boating Course. Since this class is offered in conjunction with NASBLA approved USCG Auxiliary course, a state boating safety certificate will be issued.
