Sail Training, learn to sail with Morse Alpha aboard the Norseman 447, Rocinante.

Rocinante is a “go anywhere” boat!

We are now accepting applications for  offshore and coastal sail training expeditions  aboard our Robert Perry designed, Norseman 447, Rocinante. For each expedition, we will select four or five (depends on the expedition) adventurous crew members to join us for a rigorous sail training voyage.

 Learn to Sail with Our Unique Approach


We also like to have fun! This is Ben cheering Day on as she cranks in the genoa!

What is unique about Morse Alpha sail training program is that not only will you learn the technical skills required to cruise aboard a boat 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 sailing skills, real life leadership skills, and a feeling that they all got there together. Because we want to keep the training effective and highly personal, we only take 4-5 motivated students. You can be assured of a customized, personalized program, not a cookie cutter curriculum we have to rush through.

How to Choose the Right Course

Here’s a video we put together of a recent 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!
