Join us in the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, Grenada and the Grenadine Islands.

We offer an incredible experience exploring the islands while earning American Sailing Association 103, 104, and 114 certifications. Over the course of the week, you will learn to sail and gain knowledge, experience and certifications so that you are able to charter sailboats anywhere in the world.

Why Choose Grenada and the Grenadines?

Grenada and the Grenadines are an incredible sailing destination. They offer a blend of culture, stunning landscapes, friendly people, abundant marine life, unspoiled beaches and they’re not crowded.

Why choose Not Yot Club?

We are a privately-owned ASA sailing school and use our own Lagoon catamaran.

We are committed to top-notch customer service and our testimonials reflect that!

Itinerary

Saturday Day 1.

Crew arrives at the dock to board the boat. After moving into your cabins, we will settle in with some snacks and local beer and go over some basic boat systems. Then it’s off to dinner ashore where we will go over the upcoming itinerary and get to know each other.

Sunday Day 2.

After breakfast onboard, we will cover more boat systems and begin maneuvers under power to include docking and anchoring. Then we’ll get the sails up and navigate over to Moliniere Point to snorkel the underwater sculpture park. Dinner onboard and discussion of the day’s adventure.

Monday Day 3.

We start with breakfast and classroom discussion about navigation basics and lay out a course to Carriacou for later that morning. Today we fish! All crew will participate in navigation and boat controls to the anchorage in Admiralty Bay. After a brief review, you’ll take the 103 exam. After testing, we’ll head out to our first island escape to explore and sample the local cuisine.

Tuesday Day 4.

After breakfast and a brief discussion about customs, we’ll sail to Union Island to check into St. Vincent and the Grenadines. After some exploring ashore, we’ll head back to the boat for dinner, then we’ll take a short dinghy ride to the world-famous Happy Island for sun-downers.

Wednesday Day 5.

After breakfast and a brief review, you’ll take the 104 exam. Not to worry though, Mopion is awaiting where we will stop for lunch and a swim before anchoring that night in Petite St Vincent. After we drop the hook, it’s off to dinner and happy hour ashore.
