Date: Saturday February 4th – Friday February 10th, 2017
Explore the British Virgin Islands aboard a luxurious 38′-50’yacht and enjoy a great learning vacation at the same time. Improve your sailing skills or just sit back and relax and let the wind take you away. Join one of our scheduled cruises or customize your own cruise at quoted rates with as few as four friends.
During your cruise you will be able to earn up to two ASA certifications, making your vacation a fun learning experience as well. If you are not interested in learning you can soak up the sun, enjoy the great breezes and leave the sailing to others! Whether you have never been on a boat before or have sailed for years, you will discover exciting new challenges as you tour the Caribbean. Our cruises can accommodate singles, couples and groups, or you may choose to customize your own private cruise. No matter what your desire, this is your year to sail the Caribbean with the Croton Sailing School!
