Sailing Schools in British Virgin Islands

What could be better than learning to sail in the warm climate of the British Virgin Islands? This is the gateway to you becoming your own skipper on a sailing vacation. Spend a week sailing the islands of Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Norman Island. Anchor up and sleep aboard in the gorgeous bays of North Sound, White Bay, and Savannah Bay. Tack and gybe around in the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Here, you'll experience advanced sailing training in a real bareboat chartering location. And when you're ready to do it for yourself, you'll already be familiar with the area.

Come to the Caribbean and learn to sail in the warm waters and warm climate with our sailing schools listed below.
