This 7-day intensive program will get you from limited sailing experience to being able to skipper and crew an inboard auxiliary powered cruising sailboat in places like the Virgin Islands, with the goal of being able to bareboat charter on your own! Spend Saturday through Tuesday learning to sail a small keelboat while living ashore. Wednesday through Saturday, you live aboard and learn to cruise in the waters of St. Thomas and St. John while circumnavigating both islands. Become familiar with onboard systems, develop your big boat sailing skills, explore harbors, practice docking, mooring and anchoring under power, learn navigation and piloting techniques, and more!

Please note – this program includes both the Learn to Sail course and the Cruising Course.
