About The Event

A 10 day trip off the beaten track during which we travel from St Lucia to the luscious Caribbean Islands of the Grenadines, Bequia, Mustique and Tobago Quays, including Union Island.

Made up of around 32 Islands and Cays, only nine of which are inhabited, the Grenadines are a tranquil archipelago full of beautiful beaches, incredibal reefs and tropical rainforests. This trip will be made up of a series of short hops between the islands allowing you to make the most of the gorgeous environment and beautiful blue waters. Some of the islands you can only reach by boat and they are truly untouched and wonderfully tranquil.

Your skipper is RYA qualified and you can take advantage of her knowledge, either learning the basics of sailing, wind awareness, parts of the boat and of course how to sail it or concentrating on particular areas you wish to practice! You can be as involved as you wish, whether taking the helm, changing a sail, pulling on a few sheets or simply sitting back and enjoying the (hopefully) great weather! Whatever we do we ensure you'll be safe and have fun.

Pre-Course Requirements

As this trip is made up of island hops, it will take you out into the open ocean. Therefore we recommend having at least some sailing experience before you join us for this sail. Due to this, the course is only open to those of Competent Crew level and above. Please contact us if you would like more information.

The boat

We mostly coach on yachts of between 37 and 41ft. Our yachts have been specifically chosen as they are easy to handle, great for learning! There is no denying us girls sometimes don't have the physical strength of the boys but with our technical ability and a well-chosen yacht we can do just as well. You will usually find yourself aboard an Élan 37, Jeanneau 37 or a Beneteau 40.7. All of your time will be spent living as crew-mates on your yacht.  Most of the yachts have 9/10 berths with 3 cabins and a saloon so the boats will normally have 2 persons in each cabin i.e. 6 - this is always the case for an RYA course, MAX 6 persons on-board. On some events e.g. races we use the saloon which can sleep an additional 2-4 person.
