Feel the wind rush through your hair as your boat sails over blue waves. Explore quiet coves and spot fish swimming in colorful reefs. Relax in the evening on a beach under the stars. On this course, you’ll join a group of adults to push your sailing skills and develop your leadership style. The course starts with the basics, making it a good fit for both experienced sailors and those who are new to sailing. You’ll learn to cruise Baja California’s stunning coastline in 22-foot Drascombe Longboats. Skills you’ll learn along the way include navigating hazards, reading the wind, and minimum-impact camping. Excursions onshore will include exploring the area’s desert coastline, finding wildlife in tide pools, and meeting members of fishing communities who make this area their home.Leadership will also be a key focus of this course. You’ll learn leadership by filling in different roles each day and taking on more responsibility as the course progresses. Navigating your boat in challenging weather offers a lesson in decision making. Working through group dynamics will be an opportunity to learn about communication styles. With these challenges, you’ll build your leadership skills through real experiences, experiences that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. So, start an experience today that will prepare you with the skills to keep sailing and leading no matter where you find yourself.

Additional Information

NOLS Prime: 

NOLS Prime Expeditions are immersive 1- to 3- week wilderness experiences designed exclusively for adults 23 and over. Our mission is to be educators, not guides. This means while learning how to climb, sail, backpack and more, you’re getting experience making decisions and mentorship from your instructors on managing risk with your group—with the goal that when your course is done you are ready to lead friends and family on your own wilderness trips! Vacations are great for a week or two away but wouldn’t you rather go beyond?

NOLS Mexico:

Nestled in the protected Coyote Bay, NOLS Mexico is your gateway to the coastal desert and turquoise waters of Baja California. Here you’ll have access to more than 1,000 miles of mountain and marine environments across two Mexican states. Our remote location means that the campus operates completely off the grid: we produce our own solar power for all services. NOLS Mexico is the school’s first international campus and our team’s cultural, generational, and language diversity give it a vibrant, welcoming atmosphere. Most courses start or end their routes in Coyote Bay so you’ll get to maximize your time in the backcountry by kayaking, sailing, or hiking right into or out of campus. Baja California wilderness classrooms range from open ocean to coastal desert—and the outdoor skills you’ll learn range from camping and backpacking to sailing and sea kayaking. You might learn how to handle a Drascombe Longboat in the Sea of Cortez or paddle a kayak along the coastline, making camp on a different beach each night. While backpacking, you might practice speaking Spanish with local communities or learn about the unique ecology of the region’s coastal desert. Whether you’re backpacking in the Sonoran desert or paddling in Conception Bay, you’ll get to soak in a new landscape and culture as you learn lifelong outdoor skills.
