Casting Off: Breaking Free on the Home Front

Thinking of casting off and heading for exotic anchorages? What about everything and everyone that you’re leaving behind?

This brand new course, created for BCA by Rick Ellis, tackles topics on the home front that are often taken for granted or left until the last minute; including housing, family and friends, finances, insurance, planning for emergencies at home, etc.

Many of these decisions involve things that are, or have been, very important to us, so deciding what to do can be stressful and some of the options can be expensive.


Rick Ellis is a BCA lifetime member, who brings his years of boating experience and professional facilitation expertise to his popular, “must do” course: The Psychology of Voyaging, and his new docking skills course.
