Kinetic Sailing’s instructors are US Coast Guard licensed and American Sailing Association certified. Both life-long sailors, Andy Batchelor and Lisa Batchelor Frailey have been full-time professional sailing instructors since 2006, and are frequent recipients of ASA’s “Outstanding Instructor” award.  They are the founders of Sail Solomons ASA Sailing School, which was awarded ASA’s “Outstanding School” five consecutive years when under their ownership and leadership.  Andy and Lisa are the authors of ASA’s Bareboat Cruising Made Easy and Cruising Catamaran Made Easy textbooks. They continue to provide ASA instruction and certification in partnership with Sail Solomons.

Join Andy and Lisa for coastal and ocean passage training onboard their 2015 Outbound 46 Kinetic.  A true ocean sailing yacht, Kinetic has a hard dodger, centerline forward berth, double aft berth, and two salon sea berths. All tankage is below the cabin sole, further increasing her stability. She has a molded fin keel with bulb, and draws 5’10” (shoal draft).  The mast is keel-stepped, and her sails are Quantum Fusion – fully-battened main, jib and genoa.  Kinetic is a Solent rig, so both jib and genoa are headstay rigged and ready to go.  

Take the video tours of Kinetic on YouTube:     Exterior    and     Interior

You’ll be actively engaged in all aspects of running an ocean sailing yacht on a cruise or an ocean passage, and you’ll have the experience of a lifetime. Check the Schedule to see upcoming passages, or contact us with your interests.
