Offshore Cruising Club Flotilla Sailing Vacations
We have expanded our group sailing vacation packages that give you opportunities to see the world under sail for Offshore Sailing School alumni, guests, and experienced sailors. Known in sailing circles as “flotilla cruises,” these one week or longer group vacations are organized through Offshore Sailing School on fleets of sailboats all over the world.

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 vacations for women, these special sailboat vacations provide educational opportunities for women to learn how to sail and bareboat charter in a supportive environment. Doris, Offshore Sailing’s president and CEO, founded the National Women’s Sailing Association and Women’s Sailing Foundation in 1990, and continues to be the driving force to put women in control of their sailing destiny. Find more information on our sailing lessons for women only, view “Girls Gone Sailing” video here.
