Sail into a lifetime of intellectual curiosity, exploration and opportunity.
Nothing can prepare you for the freedom and wide-open adventure of sailing in places most sailors only dream about. Students climb aboard our yachts, often not knowing anyone or having any sailing experience, and very quickly form close bonds with their fellow crewmates. Join a small group of sailors your age, along with seasoned yachtmasters and instructors, to experience the thrill of tacking, gybing and hoisting a sail in some of the world's most exotic locations. Learn how to plan and complete a multi-day passage. Put your navigation skills to the test as you sail past colorful atolls, volcanic islands, waterfalls and breathtaking lagoons. Take the adventure on land as you explore the islands and perform meaningful service projects in local communities. Return home with new skills and leadership experience under your belt, a host of IYT sailing certifications and the confidence to accomplish whatever comes next.
