Welcome!

The Boat Galley Resource Center is THE place to get information that you won't get in a typical Learn To Sail or Learn To Cruise course. I'm Carolyn Shearlock and I'd like to help you:

  • decide if living or cruising on a boat is for you
  • make a smooth transition to the cruising life, and
  • flatten out that first-year learning curve!

Scroll down to see a full listing of our online courses — including our new All-Access Pass for just $119.

Let's go!
