Offshore Sailing School adds additional courses, more

By Staff | Mar 6, 2019


Marking its 55th anniversary, the Offshore Sailing School recently made a few announcements.

The company has added more Women’s Weeks courses, navigation and passage making courses to this year’s schedule. Women’s Week Fast Track to Live Aboard Cruising courses are for women learning and living for a week aboard a monohull or catamaran. Navigation and passage making courses are for sailors with US Sailing Bareboat Cruising certification, or one can take the combo program and save.

In addition, Offshore Sailing School President and Chief Executive Officer Doris Colgate will be honored in March as a Pace Center for Girls Grande Dame at a Fort Myers event. She is being recognized for her role in business, her contributions to community and her philanthropic efforts.

“2019 has started off with a bang,” she said.

At the end of April, the Offshore Sailing School and North Sails’ North U will host the 19th Annual Performance Race Week on Captiva. Colgate explained that it is an “immersive week of racing skills and tactics” with coaches from North U that will culminate in a regatta and awards dinner on-island.

In addition, the company is a supporting sponsor for the 22nd Hobie 16 World Championship, being held Nov. 1-16 at the South Seas Island Resort – one of its partner resorts. On Dec. 6-8, it will host the Leukemia Cup Regatta “Fantasy Sail” weekend at the Pink Shell Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach.
