Sailing Schools In The British Virgin Islands

What better a place to learn how to sail than in the British Virgin Islands, where the warm trade winds are consistent most times of the year. In the BVI, the creditable sailing schools teach very basic training, to certification to Charter a Bareboat Yacht with you as your own captain.

Many of the sailing schools, based out of Tortola offer seven to ten day on board, "cruise charters," with an ASA certified instructor who guides you through the aqua blue waters of the BVI sailing from one magnificent anchorage to the next; teaching you docking, anchoring and all the points of sailing. Rules of the road, navigation, with and without GPS, knowing what the difference in water color means, everything to let you feel confident and secure in handling a vessel under most conditions.

Most of the sailing schools in the BVI have a set itinerary for you, taking in consideration of the prevailing wind directions and weather patterns that happen to prevail during the time of the year that you are on your "learning yacht charter" in the British Virgin Islands. Most of the sailing schools that offer the "learning yacht chartering" programs will take up to four students on the extended charters, qualifying all onboard who pass the testing. Remember while you're on your charter with the instructor, that it is a school to learn how to operate a vessel safely, but what better place in the world than to learn in the British Virgin Islands where you can enjoy the great snorkeling, beaches and people; and the sailing is some of the best in the world!
