We established our RYA Training Centre in Antigua in 2010 to offer the complete RYA Yachtmaster (Sail) Scheme. All courses from Competent Crew to Yachtmaster, as well as Power Boat courses are available, in a fabulous setting with fantastic sailing conditions.


Women only sailing in the Caribbean

Female only sailing courses, cruising & mile building in Antigua. We want to encourage more women into sailing by empowering them with self belief and confidence. Learn from Pippa, our experienced female skipper and get some practical hands-on training.



Located as we are in the heart of the Caribbean Island chain, multiple choices for visiting the many islands to our north and south are available. Your choice is limited only by how long you have to explore. We have no problem with how far we sail!  



The Caribbean is renowned for it’s annual schedule of top class yacht racing events such as Antigua Sailing Week. Our Yacht Racing Charters go further afield and include most of the prestigious events around the globe. Regattas, Offshore Races and Mile Building are all available.
