Command your own 50-foot monohull and experience the exhilaration that comes with the challenge. Guided by our senior staff, you and your crew navigate the BVI and also experience the thrill of blue water ocean sailing. Even if you arrive without any sailing experience, you’ll progress quickly through the basics and learn advanced skills such as coastal and offshore navigation, GPS, anchoring/docking, boat systems, and sea safety.
You’ll earn ASA Basic Keelboat Certification, Basic Coastal Cruising and opt for Bareboat Cruising. Your success during island passage-making prepares you to manage the unexpected. Practice on our Colgate 26 sharpens your sailing techniques. In addition to sailing and seamanship, you’ll participate in watersports, and explore the islands. Scuba certification and dive options are also available.
Become an inspirational leader. By engaging in practical drills, interactive lessons, and peer group training, you’ll learn to lead by example. You’ll plan and deliver lessons on sailing and seamanship. You’ll gain a new awareness of group dynamics, conflict resolution, effective communication, and problem-solving. Apply for an internship with stipend and join the SC staff after Echo ends. Call for details. The only limit is your drive and imagination.
