NEW Yacht School FastTrack Course
Beginning 1 January 2019, Yacht School is offering the Yacht School FastTrack CourseIf you have recently purchased your Amel,  I recommend the intensive Amel Yacht School Course aboard your Amel. However, not everyone has the availability, time, and/or budget to take this course. Beginning Jan 1, 2019, I have something designed just for you. I call it the FastTrack Course.
