Venue: St Lucia/Antigua/Tortola

Price from: £599 per person

Duration: 8 Days

A fantastic eight day milebuilding adventure and a taster for ocean sailing. The 280 miles, non stop, could be done in 60hrs - but we will be looking to make a slower passage stopping at Antigua and possibly other options along the way. Your skipper will decide, but the itinerary includes the need for us to finish in Tortola in time to take part in the BVI Regatta and Sailing Festival.  

What the Girls Had to Say

"What a great week it was! I really enjoyed it. Thank you all for everything - the warm welcome, the friendly, relaxed atmosphere, the patience of the instructors - and the female touch which put us all more in our comfort zone!!"

Starts: 4.40pm  St Lucia - Rodney Bay Marina 

Finishes: Ends 9am day 9

Pre-Course Requirements

As these trips often take us out into The Caribbean Sea and may involve some night sailing it is recommended that you have some previous sailing experience preferably to RYA Day Skipper level or equivalent. Do talk to us about options and itinerary for each mile-building event.

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.
