Colgate Offshore Sailing Adventures™
Adventure Sailing and Learning Vacations
As Offshore Sailing School enters its 53rd year, a host of exciting new programs are planned for Offshore Sailing School alumni, friends and sailors who want to keep on sailing. Offshore Sailing School has alumni programs designed to open new horizons and special adventures for sailors everywhere, to tempt you to continue your sailing and boating education.

We are expanding our group sailing cruises that give you the opportunity to see the world under sail. Originally just for Offshore alumni, we have opened these up to alumni friends and sailors who like group adventures. Known in sailing circles as “flotilla cruises,” these are one week or longer group cruises on fleets of sailboats sailing and partying together. Whether you are new to sailing as an Offshore Sailing School alumni, or a seasoned sailor who wants to experience more, these cruising adventures allow you to sign up and just show up to get underway.

Upcoming Sailing Trips
Heeding the call of women who want to take the helm with confidence, and following Doris Colgate’s mantra to make sailing the ultimate self-esteem building adventure, these special weeks provide educational opportunities for women to learn together in a supportive environment, from expert women instructors. Doris, our president and CEO, started the National Women’s Sailing Association and Women’s Sailing Foundation in the early 90’s. She has been the driving force ever since, in putting women in control of their sailing destinies. Here’s more information on our upcoming women-only programs . . .
A new Go-for-the-Gold Racing Cliinic debuts in early December in the British Virgin Islands. This exditing four-day program mixes non-stop racing instruction with some serious island fun at the gorgeous Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina. With the success of this event, there will be more if you can’t get away this year. In April, our annual Offshore Sailing School/North U. Performance Race Week takes on more innovation in its 17th season of collaboration between these two great teach institutions.
