Offshore Sailing School

Learning to sail on vacation can be accomplished in three intense days, which involves most of your waking hours. Or you can do a five-day program where you learn in half-days with free time to enjoy other resort activities like bicycling, kayaking, running, walking, fitness centers, tennis, golf and – of course – sightseeing. Anyone of just about any age can participate. Sailing requires dexterity but not extreme strength. During the learning process you learn to use balance and body position while pulling in and easing out lines, and while steering the boat. As crew and skipper, you become adept at quick reactions to maximize the wind’s direction and power.
