Dreaming of offshore sailing but lack experience? Maybe even joining one of the Cruising Association Rallies and would rather be your own captain than have to hire one? We can help!!
Wind In My Sails Inc. is
proud to present our new Offshore Sailing Adventures!
Now you can join an experienced Captain
and Crew aboard the sailing yacht 'Sophisticated
Lady' for the adventure of a lifetime!
Discover the thrill of ocean passagemaking and making landfall in the beautiful islands of the Caribbean.
You will discover exactly what it takes to
prepare a boat for offshore passagemaking...
provisioning, watch schedules, meal preparation at
sea, night watches, etc.
This year we are proud to offer the Caribbean 1500 Cruising Rally! We
have a 2-week package designed around getting you
the experience you need. You'll be able to
join the yacht in Hampton, Virginia, 3-4 days before
the scheduled departure date. Take in
all of the invaluable seminars offered by attendance
in the Rally (and the parties!), then we depart
the dock and set sail for the British Virgin Islands
in the Caribbean!! After 9-10 days at sea,
you will also be invited to stay on the yacht and
take in all the celebrations and awards ceremonies
before departing for home.
This Sailing Adventure gives sailing individuals (and most importantly,
sailing couples!) the chance to gain valuable experience on the ocean, including night sailing, before taking their own boat offshore
or in one of the rallies. The price per person for
the entire 2 weeks
is $2500US all-inclusive (excepting departure
and arrival taxes).
Last year 'Sophisticated
Lady' won 3 awards in the Caribbean 1500 Rally,
including 2nd in class, 1st in Jeanneau overall,
and the Tempest Trophy for assisting with a rescue
at sea! You'll find no shortage of adventure
here... and you'll also find we prefer to use our
sails as much as possible and can help you learn
the art of following weather charts and currents
to maximum advantage... It's all part of the experience!
There are only 6 berths available for this Sailing Adventure, so please Contact us for more information
and to reserve your space aboard for this fantastic
trip!! We look forward to hearing from you
and meeting you aboard 'Sophisticated Lady' for
your Caribbean Adventure of a Lifetime!!
