Four good reasons to choose Sailing Virgins

Why do others say Sailing Virgins is the best school in the Caribbean and possibly the world? And why should you spend your precious vacation time with us? Here are four good reasons.

1. Instructors

The instructor is the single most important aspect of your sailing course. You want someone who is great with people and who knows their sailing. All Sailing Virgins instructors come from working seasons as skippers and instructors at legendary sailing events company The Yacht Week. They have known founder James Kell for years. They get on with pretty much everyone. They know how to win a regatta. And they know how to have a good time.

2. The Alumni Network

In many ways, sailing is just a platform. One of the biggest benefits of this platform is the network of people you meet. Sailing Virgins has an active alum network; one that provides value long after your course has finished. Sailing Virgins Alums are typically in their 20s and 30s, professional, adventurous and with a healthy amount of irreverence. One alum event Sailing Virgins sponsors each year is the “ex-Virgins” Alumni Week in the Caribbean. It’s a week of sailing and adventure every January, when things are cold up north. No other school in the world offers this.

3. Location

If you live on the east coast of the US or Canada, you probably want somewhere that can be reached easily, especially if you want to come back and sail again with your newly-forged sailing buddies. There is no more convenient place than the Virgin Islands for such an experience. In just four hours non-stop from New York, you can go from frigid to free-ball.

4. Our Style

Many sailing schools are just there for the basic sailing. Sailing Virgins is social. The way we do this is to cater to people in their 20s-40s. Crank the music up, have a great week. This is where instruction meets fun.

The above are four important factors to consider.  There are others that you can see here.
