Not everyone can be a concert pianist, but it’s fun trying.
It’s always fun to push yourself and try something new. At the tender age of 14 my father took me to private piano lessons. My father was musical and, as it quickly transpired, I was clearly not! But I persevered and even managed to bash out a good enough rendition of “She’ll be coming round the mountain”. So, why is this relevant to learning to sail?

|Your home away from home for the week|
You will sail each day to a new anchorage. This means that you have every opportunity to practice your knots, your sail handling and your newly found navigation skills. It’s all about time on the water and getting as much experience under your belt. Every day will be different, you will experience different conditions – sometimes less wind, sometimes more wind. All of this is great for you as you are building your knowledge in different situations.

If, after a week afloat enjoying the Antiguan scenery, you decide to follow up with an Olympic sailing campaign then fantastic, or if you decide that becoming a concert pianist is more suited to you, then that’s great too. Either way, sailing is a wonderful hobby that brings people together, makes you forget everything else happening in the world and means you get to see some of the most beautiful parts of the world – all under sail power!
