Flotillas 2018

 

Flotilla

Enquire now - Click here to find out more!Join Sail Solomons for a fantastic flotilla week in the  Islands this winter! A flotilla allows you to “cruise in company” – you’ll sail as captain or crew on a beautiful, well-equipped charter boat, in company with a lead boat/flotilla leader who is a local area expert. Flotillas give you the freedom to do as you please, with the security of knowing that there is help readily on hand. It’s a great balance of independence and support for new and seasoned sailors alike. No experience is necessary – we’ll show you the ropes!

Sail Solomons is planning courses and flotillas for the Spanish Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico in  January 2018.  Exact dates, location  & prices are not yet determined.  When the dates are set, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot onboard, with the balance due by 1 October 2017.

  • Cabins: prices are per person for double-occupancy cabins.
  • Singles: if you’d like to share with another single, let us know and we’ll try to match you up.
  • Courses: you’ll have the option to take ASA 104 Bareboat Charter and/or ASA 114 Cruising Catamaran while onboard. Course cost is additional ($200/student/course, or $300/combo).

If you’d like to participate in the flotilla, but reserve your own boat (smaller or larger, catamaran or monohull), just let us know and we can negotiate and book a suitable yacht for you.
