Learn to sail in the BVIs

Beginning April 1, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina — the British Virgin Islands’ newest luxury private-island resort — will be offering three- and five-day Learn to Sail Packages, giving guests a new element for their BVI getaway.

The packages are made possible through a partnership with Fort Myers, Fla.-based Colgate Offshore Sailing School.

“Having taught more than 130,000 people to sail over their 50-year history, Colgate’s Offshore Sailing School is the perfect partner to introduce this exciting experience to our guests here in one of the world’s most fantastic sailing destinations,” stated Anura Dewapura, Scrub Island Resort managing director. “We’re thrilled to be working with the Colgates and their Offshore Sailing School team to add this remarkable sailing adventure to our growing list of island amenities.”

The five-day Learn to Sail course taught in half-day sessions starts at $2,525 per person including six nights’ accommodations.
