Miles & Experience Building in the Leeward Islands
Tel: +1 (268) 721 3456
Leeward Island mile building is about visiting Antigua’s neighbours. These are Nevis & Kitts, Eustatia, Saba, Barbuda, St. Barth’s and Sint Maarten. The 5 days cruise duration is not long enough to see them all. Wind permitting, we will do our best to take in as many as possible.
Training is an essential element in sailing. To set sail with limited knowledge is both foolhardy and dangerous, to oneself and others. Experience is essential but that cannot be taught. It has to be gained. The only way to do this is to go sailing!
Experience is essential in the making of a proficient sailor. There are also the minimum mileage requirements of the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal & Yachtmaster Offshore Certificates of Competence.
These are 800 & 2,500 miles logged respectively. In each case 50% of the miles can be in non tidal waters and 50% in tidal waters. We offer Tidal Mile Building in The Grenadines
Mile Building is available in the Caribbean under the experienced supervision of one of female RYA Instructors.
Every opportunity exists to get involved in all elements of the passage. These include planning, provisioning, night sailing, watch keeping and skippering.
Miles are logged, and the experience of our skippers is passed on willingly and enthusiastically. They will guide you through the passage. You will enjoy some fantastic sailing wherever you sail!
Please Note: Above 13 degrees 10 minutes north is non tidal.
Single ladies may book a course once a minimum group of two has booked. A 5% fully refundable deposit will reserve your place.
