Bahamas Sailing Schools - Marsh Harbour, Bahamas

At our Bahamas sailing school in Marsh Harbor, we specialize in teaching live-aboard sailing courses on luxurious cruising catamarans. Marsh Harbour is the capital of the Abaco Islands district of the Bahamas and is the third largest city in that country. The Abacos have some of the best sailing in the Caribbean, especially in the winter. Most of our Bahamas sailing courses are held in the Sea of Abaco, which offers protection from winter cold fronts.

Bahamas Sailing Courses and Schedules

At our Bahamas sailing school, we offer Course A Plus Catamaran. This class combines the Basic Sailing (ASA 101), Basic Coastal Cruising (ASA 103), Bareboat Chartering (ASA 104) and Cruising Catamaran (ASA 114) certifications into a weeklong live-aboard cruising course. Please see ASASailing Course Summaries for details on each certification standard.
