One of the best ways to learn how to sail, or to cement skills recently attained, is by racing in one of the many regattas and events scheduled in the BVI throughout the year. Alternatively, the weekly IC24 fleet races held at Nanny Cay Marina every Friday evening present the chance for beginners through to veterans to practice their skills.
Captains are always seeking crew, even if your only responsibility is ballast (extra weight).

This is a fun, fast-paced, hands-on way to learn the terminology and basics of sailing.
