  • Learn to sail in the Caribbean at Carlisle Bay in Antigua

    Learn to sail in the Caribbean at Carlisle Bay in Antigua

    There is nowhere better to learn to sail than Antigua, the Capital of Caribbean Yachting with its world famous regattas and its position as a hub for the world’s super and mega yachts over winter. The conditions are ideal for learning to sail with good breezes and warm temperatures.

    The beautiful Carlisle Bay resort has partnered with Ondeck Sailing to offer a new three-day Royal Yachting Association Start Yachting course.
    This sailing course is aimed at complete novices and is an excellent introduction to sailing a bigger keelboat (40ft). It will cover the basics of safety, ropework, sail trim, winches, mooring and anchoring and of course there will be plenty of time on the helm. At the end of the course you would expect to come away with a new level of confidence to step on a yacht and a grounding to pursue more advanced courses or even take part in one of the main regattas.
    If you are already an experienced sailor then you can still join and build on your miles and experience.
    Ondeck’s instructors are adept at ensuring that guests are encouraged at their own pace. The sailing courses are suitable for adults and children aged 11 or over. Before of after the course you can extend your holiday in Antigua and enjoy the array of facilities and activities on offer at Carlisle Bay or just relax on the beach or in the fabulous spa.

    7 nights at Carlisle Bay (based on two sailors sharing a double room) from:
    £3850 per person from December - April
    £2970 per person from May -November
    NB The price would reduce if only one person is taking the course.

    What’s included in your sailing holiday at Carlisle Bay, Antigua:
    • Return flights with British Airways to Antigua
    • Private transfers to the hotel
    • 7 nights in a suite with full breakfast daily
    • 3-day sailing course including:
        • Transport from Carlisle Bay to/from the yacht at Falmouth Harbour (9am – 5pm)
        • Lunch and refreshments on-board and time to cool off with a swim
        • Sailing gloves and an exclusive Antigua Sailing Week cap
        • Every sailor will be awarded with an RYA Start Yachting certificate on successful completion of the course
