Join us for the best sailing education and winter holiday available in our 23rd year of Caribbean instruction.

ASA 104

Starting from Tortola, the cruising area will include the surrounding waters in the British Virgins Islands, aboard a Sun Odyssey 449. Gain the fundamental skills needed to cruise and charter successfully on this 6-day course. This course will prepare you for a Cruising 30 or 35 membership or for bareboat chartering.

This course includes entering unfamiliar harbors, anchoring, sail handling, dinghy use and more. We cover the mechanical and electrical systems of a full-size cruising boat, the navigation required for sailing in coastal waters, and docking under power.

The course is structured so you can fly in on the first day and out on the last day. No need for a hotel! The course fee covers all food and drink on board.
