Sea Sense is planning a sailing class for women along the Amalfi coast of Italy to help women learn or increase their sailing skills on the Mediterranean, the Gulf of Napoli and the Isle of Capri.

For 25 years, Sea Sense said, it has been providing women with the opportunity to become competent and comfortable as skipper and crew. The course will be taught by female captains who are familiar with Mediterranean cruising.

“We've sailed here several times, and it is such an incredible area to see and appreciate by boat,” Sea Sense co-founder Capt. Patti Moore said in a statement. “It’s a treat for the senses. In addition to sailing, there will be plenty of time to explore and to soak up the region's rich culture, cafes and shops.”

The class will be held from May 31 through June 7 aboard a fully equipped 42-foot sloop.

The liveaboard course provides hands-on instruction on topics that include seamanship, sail trim, engine maintenance, close-quarters maneuvering, Mediterranean docking techniques ("Med mooring”), navigation and cruise planning.

The class, which costs $3,595, includes breakfasts, lunches, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
