We live at our school so we do expect certain conditions to be upheld, however these are not stringent and are in the interests of mutual consideration.
In particular, please do not arrive before 6:00 pm because our instructors may not be available to brief you concerning staying on board. Also please do not arrive very much later as we also have a social life that often involves going out for the evening after a busy week!
If your course does not start the following morning you will be asked to vacate the yacht by 9:00 am to facilitate yacht preparation and cleaning. Please do not return until after 6:00 pm.
If your flight brings you to Antigua early, please ask your taxi to drop you at Jolly Harbour Marina complex where there are several bars for you to relax in. You can then make your way to our base for 6:00 pm with a local taxi that has a stand just across the road from the centre of the Marina Complex. There will be plenty of people happy to direct you.
