Newly launched: Discover sailing whilst cruising the Caribbean – 3 day charter for non-sailors

There are few human endeavours more rewarding then cruising under sail.  The thrill of setting  your sails, the peace of an idyllic anchorage, the novelty of living aboard your floating home in new places.  It’s a lifestyle rich and varied in experience.

Now it’s your turn to discover this rewarding experience.  We’ve developed a unique “DISCOVER CRUISING UNDER SAIL” 2 night/3 day experience for non-sailors; bringing you the fun and freedom of sailing with great teachers in one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful sailing destinations.

Day 1:  step on board and meet Coach Paul.  Paul will take you through the basics – sailing and the wind, anatomy of a sailboat, planning your route, communicating on board, how to anchor and importantly, finding your way around the galley and producing a feast!

Day 2: after taking a dip in the gorgeous blue Caribbean, Coach Paul will teach you how to operate your dinghy, preparing your route for the day, some knot practice and the basics of navigation.

Day 3: After breakfast and perhaps a snorkel, take the Horizon Antigua Quiz – what did you learn?!  You will also have more practice lifting the anchor and learning to dock.

What do you need to bring?

  • Cap/hat with a clip or strap
  • Sailing gloves if you have them
  • Sunscreen, T Shirts, flip flops
  • Swimwear

Coach Paul – your guide, teacher and friend on board.

Please note that these are private, live aboard trips.  This means that you will be on board with your friend or partner.  You also sleep on the boat for your 2 nights and prepare all of your meals on board with your own provisions.  Maximum number of people is 2 plus your Coach.
