Caribbean Flotilla (FULL)

Caribbean Flotilla (FULL)

This flotilla is now full !   Given the devastating impacts to St. Martin / St. Maarten, the sailing base is closed and the flotilla will venture out of another Caribbean island.  Unfortunately, all boats are booked at this time. 

Warm water and refreshing breezes sound like a great early Christmas present.  Create lasting, unforgettable memories sailing on your chartered boat with family and friends in the company of like-minded sailors.  Sample some other islands, stretching your knowledge beyond Lake Travis, and the more commonly sailed British Virgin Islands.

Captain Robert will be leading the flotilla, sharing his vast knowledge of the islands, including places to anchor, swim, snorkel and sail.  The flotilla features a lead vessel and team that provides daily chart briefings for participants and arranges optional gatherings for social interaction at the end of the day.

Please call the office for more details.
