Caribbean Captain-Fulfill the Dream
June 25, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until June 26, 2016
It seems hard to believe, but NOW is the time to think about joining J World and the Chesapeake Boating Club for the annual Caribbean Flotilla, planned for February 4-11, 2017. This year you can join the flotilla as a participant aboard a staffed boat with a onboard coach providing instruction and support or take advantage of our group booking discount and sail your own boat as part of our fleet.
To kick off the Caribbean adventure planning season we are offering a special class and preparation party to get everyone’s clocks set to island time.
If you have ever dreamed of sailing the crystal clear waters and cruising the idyllic beaches and post-card perfect anchorages of the Caribbean, but worry that you might not have enough sailing or chartering experience to confidently and comfortably take your friends and family on the vacation of a lifetime, then join us June 25th and 26th for the Caribbean Captain course where you will learn the core competencies to being a capable charterer. Check out the proposed course syllabus here.
Can’t join us for the course? Come for the chart briefing and Island Party, Its Free!
Our Chart Briefing and Island Party is a great place to learn more about cruising in the islands, explore options for joining the J World/Chesapeake Boating Club annual flotilla, drink a painkiller and play the ring game. Bring your questions and your flip flops and slip away into a fun filled evening.
What does all of this mean?
- Join us as crew for the 2017 flotilla

- Swing by at 1600 on June 25th for a painkiller and some good information about sailing the BVI’s
