If you really wish to learn how to sail, this is hands down, the best place on the planet! We did out courses almost 5 years ago and now enjoy our annual bareboat charter every year in SVG paradise!

Excellent sailing school. I completed ASA 101 to 104 with my significant other in April 2017. Fantastic instruction, excellent hands on experience, highly recommend this school. I have the bug now! I want to go sailing every day!

“Finn was absolutely fantastic. He balanced training for our skill set and brought together 5 crew/strangers and was able to train us all for our very specific needs and skill sets. Heals left us with a need to do more. I have had many training classes, Finn was by far the best trainer I have ever had.”

“Fabulous week – great fun on the sea, discovering islands, whilst learning to sail with great company!  Highly recommended!  Many thanks to the team!” – Michael Depping, Monohull

About Us

BAREFOOT OFFSHORE CARIBBEAN SAILING SCHOOL is the only American Sailing Association (ASA) sailing school in St Vincent & The Grenadines, and is the longest-established (more than 20 years) and most active ASA school in the south-eastern Caribbean.  It is the only Sail Canada school outside of Canada.

The company, a subsidiary of Barefoot Yacht Charters, is owned and run by folks who have been sailing and living here for 5 generations, and this gives us the unusual advantages of insight and local knowledge that most charter companies, no matter how experienced, simply cannot offer.

Our sailing school offers the following levels of ASA Certifications

In addition, BOSS offers the following Sail Canada certifications:
