Boxxer Cruising and Racing Programs

CARIBBEAN – SAILING COURSES and RATES

Caribbean Mileage Builder Cruising Adventures
7+ Days - Please contact our booking agent for details. www.oceans101.com
This is an adventurous cruising program that provides the crew with cruising skills that can leads to a CYA Intermediate Crew Standard. It will also provide the crew with a first-hand experience at Chartering a large sailing vessel in these tropical waters in the event they would like to Bare Boat Charter in the future.   The cruising area will be primarily in the southern portion of the Caribbean where the winds are generally quite strong (20 to 30 knots).
Most overnights will be spent at anchor in the small well protected coves and bays of these tropical southern Caribbean islands. Some of your time however will also be spent ashore exploring the local towns or the white sandy beaches. The swimming and snorkeling is fabulous in these clear Caribbean waters while you explore one of the many coral reefs.


Caribbean Regattas
7+ Days    (includes regatta entry fees, dock fees and breakfast & lunch)
Please contact our booking agent for details. www.oceans101.com
The Southern Caribbean Regattas are normally a 7 day sailing event where the first few days are spent getting familiar with the boat, practicing our sailing skills and also getting a bit of a tan. We normally sail in the Cruiser/Racer Class (this classification is very competitive however does not require the use of our massive spinnaker sails) These Regattas are an excellent place to improve and hone your sailing skills while at the same time also acquiring new techniques for your local club regattas back home. Boxxer in addition to being a great performance boat also has a great charter layout with 6 -8 single berths and 2 double berths.

A great morning splash

All of the anchorages that we visit offer great swimming and the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean provide a fabulous way to start each day with a splash.  Boxxer also has a convenient walk down transom that makes for an easy access and exit for both swimming and dingy travels.  

Secluded anchorage in Grenada

Many of the anchorages in the Grenadines and Grenada group offer both seclusion and beautiful natural surroundings. Most of the islands are also in close proximity to one another which provides everyone lots of time to relax, swim or explore once we arrive and set our anchor.
