Join us for coastal and offshore sail training expeditions aboard our nimble Norseman 447, Rocinante.

For each expedition, we will select five adventurous crew members to join us for a rigorous sailing course.

Learn to Sail with Our Unique Approach

What’s unique about the Morse Alpha sailing school is that not only will you learn the technical skills required to cruise safely and efficiently, but you’ll also be trained in communication, leadership, the role of the captain, and creating a shipboard culture of positive camaraderie. Our goal is that every crew member walks away with hardcore sailing and navigation skills, real life leadership skills, and a feeling that they all got there together.  It’s hands-on training 24/7, and you will learn to run all aspects of the boat. Because we want to keep the training effective and highly personal, we only take 5 motivated students. You can be assured of a customized, personalized program, not a cookie cutter curriculum we have to rush through.

The Birth of Morse Alpha Expeditions

Here’s a video we put together of a training delivery. The idea for Morse Alpha Sail Training Expeditions grew from our training deliveries, and this video should give you an idea of what you can expect.

We learned so much and had a great time! We can’t say enough great things about Teresa and Ben’s sailing, people, and teaching skills, attitude, modeling, easiness to be with, and more. With no exaggeration, this was a life-changing experience for us. We unreservedly recommend that anyone who is making the leap to live-aboard sailing or anyone who wants to go to the next level with their sailing skills consider working with Teresa and Ben!
