Sailing

Freedom and wide open adventure awaits on a liveaboard sailing adventure! No experience is needed to climb aboard and experience the thrill of tacking, gybing and hoisting a sail on some of the world’s most beautiful oceans.

The bonds that students form with one another and their highly qualified instructors enhance the experience of exploration at sea. Working in small teams, students live and develop leadership skills together on adventures ranging from 12-day journeys to 21-day voyages.

During Broadreach liveaboard sailing adventures, students will:

  • Island hop through the Caribbean Leeward or Windward Islands.

  • Gain boat-handling experience in large catamaran, monohull and small boat handling. 

  • Learn and experience the fundamentals of sailing, navigation and itinerary planning. 

  • Develop leadership, problem solving and decision making skills. 

  • Earn sailing certifications including International Yacht Training (IYT) and Broadreach , including IYT International Crew, IYT Marine Communications (VHF-SRC) and Broadreach Flotilla Skipper.

Sailing summer programs

Students will master small and large boat handling, experience night sailing, voyage across the Caribbean, plan and complete a multi-day passage, and perform meaningful service projects along the way. After exploring the Caribbean with new friends, students return home with a variety of new skills, certifications and leadership experiences – ultimately resulting in new perspectives and heightened confidence.
