We never have more than four students per week during our courses! In most cases, THREE students are expected to run a class, however, private lessons with only two students are available for an up-charge. Courses that require us to charter a boat from a third party must have four students in order to run the course, AND there will be an up-charge associated with chartering that third party boat. Fill your own crew with friends/family, OR if needed, Black Rock will try their best to match you with others seeking the same product/service!
Sailing the Caribbean is easier than you might think! Our Virgin Island sailing school location, based in St. Thomas, USVI, is the perfect “jumping off” point for an incredible sailing experience. You will find us cruising the US, British, and Spanish Virgin Islands.
Our Caribbean sailing courses are insanely fun and informative. We have been teaching, sailing and providing captained charters in these waters since 1995!
The Virgin Islands are truly a sailing mecca. Steady trade winds, crystal clear waters, hundreds of secluded harbors to explore, hundreds of reefs to snorkel, hundreds of white sand beaches to enjoy, famous beach bars, excellent restaurants, happy people, and gorgeous scenery are some of the reasons why these islands are the charter boat capital of the world.
We have watched these islands grow in popularity over the past two decades, but fortunately, we know the waters 1000 times better than the average charterer, and can easily avoid the charter boat “herd” and show our students the many secluded spots that the islands have to offer those in the know.
7-8 Day Course
Each day consists of a dynamic two-hour lecture, a quick lunch break, followed by at least 5 hours of hands-on sailing!
Flying into St. Thomas to save on flights that are also more dependable.
