Courses generally run for one week and are “Learn and Cruise” which means you learn to sail while cruising in the beautiful secluded Grenadines or the wider, wilder, Windward and leeward Islands. BOSS delivers a true blue water sailing experience second to none.
See the Barefoot Offshore Sailing School website for some of the islands you will visit during your sailing course.

This gives you a unique opportunity to join Basic-Advanced level Learn-To-Cruise certifications as well as Coastal Navigation Certifications in the beautiful Grenadines ! However, if you wish to do some advanced or basic training in Canada, we can also arrange this for you!
One week of practical tuition on board a 4050 foot vessel (dependant on class size) in the tropical waters of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
This course is developed to help us reduce our zone of uncertainty while out on the wáter and give us hands on skills while using the world around us to aid in our Navigation. We will use everything from the indiginous birds to the area, persistent swell directions and the stars above to find our way. Jack Llagan says: “The venerable history of navigation should not be scuttled in favour of the GPS set but, on the contrary, should be embraced to enhance the instinctive wayfinding skills of all seafarers. The Barefoot Navigator is part history, part textbook and part polemic.” Download a FREE PDF/VIDEO with more course information here.
