You can become a sailing skipper in one week. This course is conducted by a qualified instructor and set to the syllabus of the American Sailing Association (ASA) and NauticEd. The fast-track skipper course commences in Le Marin, in the south of Martinique, sails for seven days around the legendary waters of the French Caribbean, and returns the following Saturday at midday. Students live on board a fast, comfortable Beneteau First 40 yacht for the entire week. Meals on board (breakfast, lunch and two dinners) are included, as is instruction and your accommodation on board.

SV is a good crew of young adventure types that balance solid and informative education with the realities of what sailing is; fun, adventurous and potentially dangerous. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn to sail.

Sailing Virgins is a class act. Everything they do had the you as the skipper in training in mind. Instructors are fantastic and you learn the whole time in a fun/relaxed environment. I'd highly recommend Sailing Virgins to anyone looking to learn how to sail!
