TRANSATLANTIC SAILING PASSAGES

But first, let us show you what you are in for:

Blue Water Awaits

Shake the stress of life ashore and the blare of your daily commute.  Find yourself breathing deeply under crisp stars, unencumbered by city lights with only the sound of the water rushing the hull aboard s/v Libra.  These passages can be as intense or educational as you would like with full sailing lessons included for those who want rigorous training while underway or you can spend your off-shift hours leisurely with a book in hand on the sun deck.  It is up to you.  Libra offers adventure-filled overnight voyages south to tropical destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico and the Keys as well as brisk, sometimes brutal, blue-water training trips back north across the Gulf to Pensacola.  Per passenger rates cover food, safety gear, communication devices and provisioning for the passage.  You can book a return flight home from the tropical destination or join us for the upwind training sail back. Either way, blue water awaits.

We always offer group discounts if you round up several friends who want to join you on a sail as well as package discounts if you want to book both legs of a voyage (i.e., the voyage down to the tropical destination as well as the return trip back).
