Sail Caribbean



Students learn sailing, racing and seamanship aboard 50-foot yachts while cruising the waters of the British Virgin and Leeward Islands. Activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, water-skiing, windsurfing, kayaking and island exploration. Boys and girls assist with the maintenance and the operation of the vessel. Students live in single-gender cabins while participating in marine biology and outdoor adventure education. Boys and girls in all Sail Caribbean programs may undertake community service projects of five to 30 hours' duration. Projects include mentoring of local youth and environmental conservation. No prior experience is necessary for enrollment in any program.
