Share our passion for sailing. What better place to learn to sail than in the beautiful, warm Caribbean? From our base in Antigua we offer a full range of Learn to Sail opportunities at our Antigua sailing school.
As an established American Sailing Association Sailing facility, we offer the ASA 101, 103 and 104 courses and Certification.
If you are new to sailing, why not set sail with one of our Instructors to see if you have a love of sailing?
All of our courses are private, live-aboard courses. This means that you will arrive in the marina on your first day with your friends or family and set sail with your Instructor. The yacht is yours for your trip! You will then experience and explore the many different anchorages of Antigua, sleeping and dining on board; or eating ashore at one of the many restaurants. You return to the marina on your last day of the sailing vacation.
