- Setting Description:
- This voyage spans more than 600 nautical miles of the Lesser Antilles, from the Leeward Islands to just off the coast of South America. The 50-foot yacht you call home for the next month provides an outstanding environment for comprehensive sail training and wide-open adventure. This trip is not for everyone. Life aboard a boat can be challenging, demanding hard work and respect for your vessel and the sea. Yet the rewards of your experience, labor and training are great. You appreciate the subtleties of your yacht under sail. You learn firsthand about Caribbean culture and its people. You are a sailor, you are an explorer, and to the rest of the crew, you are part of a team. Together you create an unforgettable journey most sailors only dream about.
