Horizon Yacht Charters Sailing School in Antigua is delighted to offer learn to sail, cabin-only American Sailing Association certified courses for their 2015 season. The courses are ideal for those people who have always wanted to experience sailing but have not had like minded friends to share the trip with them.
Director Jackie Ashford comments “I receive many requests from individuals or couples who want to join a fun Group rather than have one to one sailing tuition and the related expenses. This will be an accessible way to discover sailing and make new friends in a relaxed and stunning sailing environment. Sailing is so rewarding and we are pleased to be able to launch this new initiative and get more people on the water”.
The Antigua sailing school course will cover the American Sailing Associationlevel 101 and 103 certification courses over the 7 night/8 day trip.
The courses take place on a Bavaria 40 monohull yacht and all textbooks will be ordered in advance to allow for early reading. Each of the two available cabins can accommodate a couple or two friends sharing. Antigua offers the perfect sailing environment for novices; steady trade winds, non-tidal conditions, beautiful scenery and a protected leeward coast. Cooking on-board will be part of the learning experience and there will be plenty of time to explore ashore, swim and snorkel off the boat and eat at the many beach-side restaurants.
The program will initially be rolled out at our Antigua sailing school for two weeks: Week 1 February 7 – 14 2015 and Week 2 April 18 – 25 2015. A maximum of 4 students can be accommodated sharing two double cabins. Charter fee per person, based on 4 students*, US$1,595**
