Sailing conditions are Champagne every day! Sail, Sail, Sail in this is a year-round sailing destination with fresh breezes and calm seas. Go Sail Virgin Islands offers bareboat certification courses on sailing vacations in the glorious U.S. Virgin Islands. The active learn-to-sail experience keeps people coming back to the tropical conditions with daytime temperatures of 80 – 85°F and 15 to 20 knots easterly winds year-round. Serene bays have inviting crystal-clear turquoise waters near 82°F.

Here are 3 reasons why the USVI is so easy:
– No passport required
– You can get to the boat in less than 1 hour from the airport.
– It is much less crowded than nearby islands.

Cruising couples find it to be a perfect cruising area! It’s safe for families, the conditions are predictable, and the beaches are beautiful. There are three main islands called St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix. The bays are known for great snorkeling, fun beach bars, and very accessible, calm anchorages. These islands will blow you away for their diversity as well as pristine underwater world with turtles, sting rays, tropical fish, and coral.

► Adventure – Go Sail Virgin Islands is much more than sailing school. The courses are adventure sailing courses where we snorkel, swim, and explore.
► Sailing Certifications – Leave the week as captain, get ASA Bareboat Cruising sailing qualifications.
► Cruising Couples Courses courses – Designed for you and your mate!
► Bareboat – We offer a 10% discount when ASA Members book a bareboat charter directly with Go Sail VI.
