Event Information


Saturday, February 11th – Saturday, February 18th, 2023

Join us for eight wonderful days of sun, sand and sailing in the Caribbean!  Your dream trip begins with a flight to beautiful Tortola, center of the British Virgin Islands or St. Thomas, where you will take a water taxi to Tortola.

Sailing experts have declared the British Virgin Islands the finest sailing and cruising area in the world.  And, winter (January to March) is the best time to be there!  Reliable trade winds average 15-20 knots from the East.  Seas are small due to the protection from over forty islands.  Daytime high temperatures in January average 82°F, and nighttime lows average 71°F while the water averages 82°F.  The British Virgin Islands have over forty anchorages: many within a few hours sail of each other.  Beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise, crystal clear water and great snorkeling/scuba complete the ingredients for paradise.  This is the perfect destination if you like PROTECTED WATERS, GOOD WINDS, and SHORT DISTANCE BETWEEN ANCHORAGES.

Accommodations can be made for an accompanying spouse, significant other, friend or family member, who wishes to be aboard but not participate in the learning.  Or, you can be your own skipper!

ACTIVITIES:  The possibilities are endless!  Along with the continuous excellent sailing and navigation instruction provided by Mike and his staff, some time will be set aside for vacation type activities—sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, reading, relaxing, hiking, informal racing or just having fun!

COST: The following prices include eight days/seven nights aboard the yacht, instruction, two ASA certifications, provisioning for seven breakfasts, seven lunches, plus four dinners aboard.  Three dinners ashore not included. Beverages (except water, coffee, and tea aboard), food at the hotel, and airfare are extra.

Catamaran – $4,495/person double occupancy or $8,540.50 per couple (5% off for each person). Please contact us for rates if you wish your own double berth stateroom. 5% off for repeat customers or Gold Club/Lease Members: $4,270.25. Cannot combine discounts. SPECIAL!
