WHY SAIL WITH SAILING VIRGINS?

Awesome Instructors

We pull from a network of over 300 skippers from The Yacht Week and only select the best in terms of sailing competency, teaching ability and soft skills. We love our instructors and think you will too.

Incredible Location

The British Virgin Islands are legendary for their consistent “Goldilocks” breeze: perfect conditions for sailing. Combining that with some of the top beaches in the world – and crystal clear waters – makes for an incredible spot to learn how to sail.

Global Network

Your Sailing Virgins experience shouldn’t end once your course is over. With a network of several hundred like-minded, adventurous young people, we have a network you can tap into for your next sail or bareboat charter adventure (ask about our sponsored alumni weeks).

Keep it relaxed...

Our instruction is chilled. We don’t shout. We allow our students to learn by doing and by making mistakes. We’re also not afraid to have fun at the same time with frequent trips ashore to the many great restaurants and nightlife in the BVI and Martinique.

Wonderful Island Adventure Sailing!

     

Sailing Virgins is unreal — worth every penny and more. You will learn to sail, explore new places each day and night, and meet legendary people from all over the world all in one trip. The passion for sailing aboard Libertas is contagious no matter your skill level — and the best part is that YOU will be sailing the boat.

In my two weeks on course, Jack and James entrusted us full control over the navigation, the helm and the sails. There is no better way to quickly develop confidence in boat handling. Epic.

I would highly recommend Sailing Virgins to anyone in their 20s and 30s looking for a full-on adventure mixed with an unparalleled sailing instructing experience.

Sailing Virgins Is Outstanding!

     

Two friends of mine and I booked a trip for half a week. We had no experience at all and just jumped into to the fascinating world of sailing.

Everyone was on a different level of sailing knowledge, but this made the team even better. Because of that, the more experienced students could get more challenging tasks and also helped me and my friends to strengthen the basics we were about to learn. I felt that the instructor teaches everyone individually at the best, even though we were all so different.

I can highly recommend to book a trip with Sailing Virgins. You will feel so blessed while sailing with this excellent sailing school.

I completed two sailing courses with Sailing Virgins this summer (June/July 2017). I came in with little sailing experience and can’t recommend Sailing Virgins enough.

I loved how Sailing Virgins takes a new approach to sailing by combining great instruction with full-on adventure. Furthermore, they tailor to a younger crowd which is different from any other school I came across.

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to sail, these guys are totally the way to go.

So amazing I decided to get married during it!

     

James is an amazing captain and an even more amazing person. His love for the water and sailing made this trip so peaceful. He goes above and beyond to make sure all guests are enjoying themselves.

During our trip my husband and I decided to get married and James was the officiant! I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding or vacation :).
