Mile & Experience Building in the Windward Islands
Tel: +1 (268) 721 3456
This is only available as a 6 week package for minimum groups of 3.
During these 6 weeks we sail south from Antigua to reach the tidal waters of St. Vincent & The Grenadines. We then spend as much time as is necessary logging 1,250 nm tidal miles cruising around the many islands in these waters.
Once we have achieved this target we either take a cruise back to Antigua. Intensity will depend on how much time it took to log the tidal mileage. The passages south from, and north to, Antigua log approximately 600 non tidal miles
This is a fantastic opportunity to visit, or pass by, most of the islands in The Caribbean Chain. These offer fantastic scenery and diverse cultures.
Training is an essential element in sailing. To set sail with limited knowledge is both foolhardy and dangerous, to oneself and others.
Experience is equally essential but that cannot be taught. It has to be gained. The only way to do this is to go sailing!
Not only is experience 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 at least 50% tidal miles must be logged.
Miramar Sailing offers a range of Tidal and Non Tidal Mile & Experience Building Passages to help satisfy both requirements.
Passages are undertaken under the experienced supervision of one of our female RYA Instructors. There is every opportunity to get involved in all elements of the passage. These include including planning, provisioning, night sailing, watch keeping and skippering.
Miles are logged, and the experience of our instructors is passed on willingly and enthusiastically. They will guide you through the passage. You will enjoy some fantastic sailing wherever you sail!
A bonus is the fantastic Caribbean sailing you will enjoy!
Please Note: Below 13 degrees 10 minutes north is tidal.
Single ladies may book a course once a minimum group of three has booked. A 5% fully refundable deposit will reserve your place.
