Be Empowered, Enjoy the Freedom that Learning to Sail Provides!

And you will be amazed at how much you learn and how much fun you have in our 5-day Learn to Sail Course. On this learn to sail vacation, you learn the basics and how sailboats and power boats co-exist in half-day sessions, with half-days free to take advantage of all the other resort activities available – like swimming, tennis, cycling, using the spa and fitness center, exploring on eco-tours, fishing, golf, or just relaxing with a good book.
The 5-day Learn to Sail course was a great introduction to sailing, increasing my confidence and knowledge. The course teaches the essentials of safe and efficient sailing techniques. Our instructor did a great job providing examples to help understand some of the more technical aspects, which can be difficult to grasp for the new sailor. The total course experience was great!

When You Step Aboard a Beautiful Big Cruising Yacht You Will Be Totally Amazed
It’s definitely a jaw-dropping experience to go from the Learn to Sail experience on a 26 footer to 5-days of cruising immersion on a 43′ cruising monohull yacht. This is the ultimate WOW experience, one you will cherish for the rest of your life. Why? Because the Fast Track to Cruising Course opens new horizons to see the world under sail. The first two days you stay ashore while you learn and absorb the basics of sailing. And then you step aboard an impressive 43′-47′ cruising yacht and learn what it’s truly like to live the cruising lifestyle.
We came to class with no prior sailing experience and left with 3 certifications, a new vocabulary and a new friend. What a wonderful experience for our family of 3 to learn and cruise together! – Jane Lowe

To celebrate our 25th anniversary we decided to take the Learn to Sail course. I’m very proud of this milestone. Learning to sail, opening a new chapter – a new adventure – in our lives seemed it might be exceptional enough. It was. We ‘re extremely excited, renewed, and can’t wait to sail more. We loved learning to sail and virtually every single thing about our overall experience was fantastic. – Helen Wilding Cook
The course was the quintessential introductory sailing course. The boat was sound, nimble and forgiving. The material was comprehensive yet simple. The accommodations were luxurious. Most importantly, the instructor was top-notch and first rate. He was caring, experienced, knowledgeable and most importantly, fun. It was obvious that sailing was his life and that he wanted to impart that experience. – Phil Cook

Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor and overall experience. Went from feeling unsteady to start with to feeling confident behind the helm of a 43′ sailboat. Pretty cool! Combination of books, instruction and practical experience reinforced the skills. Our instructor, Hunter, was beyond fantastic, like having an extremely knowledgeable and patient friend show you how to sail. – Alexander Richards
