Why learn to sail at Virgin Islands Sailing Academy?
Virgin Islands Sailing Academy is based in the US Virgin Islands and operates as an American Sailing Association Affiliated sailing school since 2013. We teach and certify our students to ASA standards and teach the entire series of ASA on the water classes, from beginner to ocean passage making standards. Classes are available at Virgin Islands Sailing Academy November - April to fit almost anyone's schedule.
All our instructors are ASA certified sailing instructors and have both their US Coast Guard captainís license ensuring the finest instruction available.
Virgin Islands Sailing Academy is a small boutique sailing school which serves the needs of discriminating students who only would be satisfied with sailboats in excellent condition, award winning instructors, and visiting only the best destinations. Learn to sail on our 39-foot Pearson sloop rigged sailboat that is in superb condition, and equipped with the latest in electronics, and safety equipment.
Visit exotic destinations in the US Virgin Islands including St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix while taking beginner to advanced level sailing classes.
All our sailing classes are taught in a 6-9 day, live aboard approach, where students are totally immersed into learning to sail and cruise, and no hotels are required. Class size is kept small and is typically 3-4 students with a maximum of five.
We offer experienced sailors without prior certification but with demonstrable sailing skills and wanting to take our 6-day combination ASA103/104 course the option of testing out of ASA 101 at a nominal cost. This enables them to go directly to the Intermediate (ASA 103) and, ultimately, to the advanced (ASA 104) certification levels.
Enjoy just the right mix of education and fun that most students are looking for. Although our classes emphasize educational content, when the day is done you will likely find yourself in an exotic location with time to explore and kick back.
Students who come to Virgin Islands Sailing Academy learn from instructors with multiple perspectives. Virgin Islands Sailing Academy is part of Captain In You Sailing Schools, Inc.
