The Bahama Islands are a sailing paradise, easy to get to and so close to home.  It’s an incredible feeling to sail in the Sea of Abaco with the trade winds blowing, all the while tucked behind the barrier islands with calm and brilliant blue water.  There are small settlements, snug harbors and deserted white sand beaches.  It is a fantastic place to learn or upgrade skills, while chasing away the winter blahs and getting ready for the sailing season.  The 8 day live-aboard sailing class will be taught aboard a comfortable, modern sloop, and departs from Marsh Harbour.

The women-only course is April 29 through May 6, 2017.  See the Sailing Schedule Page for more details!
