More about this Flotilla?

If you’re looking to gain some experiential training, then this is a great opportunity to hang out with two of our top Instructors. Emmy is a full-time captain, she loves to share her lessons learned from with students and is a master at finding the off-the-beaten path gems the islands have to offer. Emily has sailed the Grenada waters and cannot wait to share her love for these islands with everyone as well.

Above, we say “light instruction” because – this is a vacation but with that comes gaining the experience of what a sailing vacation offers and some how-to’s when operating a boat on such a vacation.

Those who are competent skippers bringing their crew or family and friends are certainly welcome and encouraged to join the comradery. Or those that want to just hang back and get captained around with their feet up in the hammock – we have a place and a captain for you as well.

The 2024 Grenada Flotilla is a casual flotilla without a ‘theme.’ This is NOT an adult-only flotilla, a party yacht week, or a flotilla focusing solely on hiking or wines or yoga. We’re laid back and run our flotillas that way. Of course, you’re welcome to explore as you see fit. There is a no ducks-in-a-row mentality; a flotilla offers you independence with peace of mind as well as fun and camaraderie with other flotilla sailors.
