These incredible sailing lessons for women start with two days learning the basics on a lively Colgate 26 while staying ashore the first three nights at a beautiful resort location. On day three you board a  Jeanneau 439 monohull or Leopard 48 catamaran and set sail for six days of comprehensive sailing education while moving from port to port

Either way you’ll have a blast and enjoy the camaraderie that comes with women learning together. Plan to arrive Friday night and start your sailing for women course Saturday morning. Saturday and Sunday you sail all day with a break for lunch, learning on the Colgate 26. Monday you board the cruising boat and spend the next six days sailing from port to port, island to island, anchorage to anchorage. You learn all day every day in a structured curriculum guaranteed to make you a very proud cruising sailor.
