Our most popular package, the Gulf Charter Sailing School Zero to Hero program is designed to take students through all 3 of our IYT course offerings in a fast paced 14 Day Training Session which combines classroom theory, weather and navigation exercises, linehandling and ropework, marina docking and sailing drills, onboard yacht orientation, passage planning, live-aboard sailing experience and other sailing skill essentials. Students typically log over 400 nautical mile of hands-on sailing experience during the program. The full-time nature of the Zero to Hero program immerses students in the ways of ships and the sea and is a proven method of providing students with the knowledge and abilities they need to get out sailing safely. At the end of your training session, you will be examined and evaluated to receive your IYT Bareboat Captain certificate.

The Zero to Hero package price includes on board accommodation when at sea, all meals onboard, all yacht and instructor costs, all classroom materials, IYT Passport to Yachting/Logbook, IYT Registration and IYT Bareboat Captain Certificate upon course completion.
