New Racing Clinic for Sailors in the British Virgin Islands
Offshore Sailing School is adding a new venue for its popular racing programs, at the Marriott Autograph Collection® Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands.

Scheduled for December 4-9, 2016, this new four-day racing program for sailors is hosted by National Sailing Hall of Fame Inductee Steve Colgate, with instruction by veteran Offshore Performance Race Week coaches, led by Mumm Worlds Champion Rob (Bobby) Brooks.

Coaches include Tom Babel, Bobby Brooks, Rod Favela, Mark Foster, and Brian Van Leeuwen – all expert racing sailors with many years of coaching and multi-wins under their boat shoes. The program includes racing clinics mornings and afternoons, with shore seminars, parties, a regatta for trophies, “and yes, time to relax and explore this sailors’ paradise,” says Colgate.

“This is the perfect location to learn to race or improve your competitive skills, with steady trade winds and a gorgeous resort for accompanying family to play while you’re on the water,” Colgate adds. www.OffshoreSailing.com
