Flotilla 2018

 

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 hosting a flotilla in Antigua, 14-21 & 21-28  January 2018. (We have shifted from Puerto Rico and Spanish Virgin Islands due to hurricane damage.) Price is listed below.  To reserve your spot,  a 50% non-refundable deposit is required,with the balance due by 15 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.
