Boaters University Tips

You can sign up for Jeff’s Offshore Cruising course by going to

In February of 2019, Jeff spent three intense days in Jacksonville, FL to film a new Boaters University course. The result is a very comprehensive series of video clips to watch and documents to download. All of these are designed to help prepare sailors and power boaters who wish to travel offshore.

During the filming of lessons, the film crew asked Jeff to shoot a couple of “teaser shorts” to explain a helpful tip for cruising boaters.

This Offshore Cruising Tip is about Centering Your Helm and reminds you the importance of knowing your steering wheel position and rudder angle before you depart the dock.

Boaters University offers a varied curriculum with instruction taught by well know marine industry personalities who specialize in different fields. JMYS is proud to partner with Boaters University and hope that you will sign up to take the course if you plan to do some cruising offshore.
