Our SGU student learn to sail courses are a great way to get out on the water and learn to sail a yacht. Grenada is well-known for its delightful sailing and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is one of the top internationally recognized training agencies for sailing. Blow those study cobwebs out of your hair with the warm sea breeze!
Have a weekend free from study? We offer group SGU student learn to sail courses over 2 days for groups of 4 or more. If you have 5 or 7 days then why not invite your SGU friends on the trip of a lifetime? Sail around the stunning Grenadines with our instructor, learning to sail, experiencing the island culture and food.
Chao Lay is the beautiful 46 foot sailing yacht that we train on. Immaculately kept, she is very spacious on board and a solid bluewater cruiser. Chao Lay is perfect as a training vessel and very comfortable to sail. She is fully equipped with all of the safety equipment required, annually inspected by the RYA and exceeds the standards set by the RYA and MCA.
