Day 1 – Sunday 9.30AM

Arrive at Fish ‘N Lime Inn, West End, Tortola to meet your fellow students and instructor. As well as being a great restaurant, the Fish ‘N Lime Inn also provide accommodation the night before and after the course should you require it (ask Heather there for a Sailing Virgins discount). Once you have settled in your instructor will conduct a safety briefing and take you through the course plan.  Shortly afterwards you will be on your way! A popular first stop is at Sandy Cay where you will be able to have some lunch and a swim. Every day you will moor or anchor up for the night, finish the official course activities at around 5pm and either cook aboard or go ashore to have dinner.

Day 2 – Day 6

Wake up to the sounds of the sea. You will get your sea legs as your instructor continues to teach you going through the course syllabus. All the modules in the course outline will be covered. The instructor will take time with every student to make sure they have a good level of competency at the end of the week. The locations visited during the course can change on short notice due to weather and other conditions, but for your reference they will most likely include: Cane Garden Bay, Norman Island, Jost van Dyke and Virgin Gorda. There is a written test that will be taken by every student.
