Whitecaps Sailing
Punta Gorda, Florida

Whether you wish to learn to sail or to improve your skills, Whitecaps Sailing can not only help you achieve your goals but also get you the sailing vacation of a lifetime.

As Med Sailing Adventures, we have a long history of guiding flotillas under the ASA flag in exotic locations
like Croatia, Spain, Turkey, Italy, the Seychelles, and with our Whitecaps Sailing ASA-certified school,
we now also teach in these beautiful countries.

In Florida, we teach during the winter month in subtropical Punta Gorda, on Charlotte Harbor, a huge well protected bay, and an ideal teaching environment and, during the summer months, we head for our teaching grounds in the sunny Mediterranean with its clear blue waters, and home of rich cultures and fascinating history. It is a unique and fun way of earning your ASA certifications

Capt. Jean De Keyser and his wife, “Admiral” Mila, have been in the sailing business since 2007. They have run a charter company, a sailing school and have been organizing ASA flotillas for the last 14 years.
