Preparing for your course

Here are a few things to think about when you are preparing for your trip.

USVI Travel Restrictions November 2021

As per USVI government protocol, all guests must complete the USVI Travel Screening Portal prior to travel to USVIs. If you have questions about this process, please contact us and we are happy to assist. 

Covid 19 Update

Greetings from Go Sail Virgin Islands. In light of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, we’d like to share a few updates with you. 

  1. Our captain and crew are fully vaccinated and have yet to contract the virus.

  2. We require that our guests are fully vaccinated. This is to ensure the safety of everyone on board and the residents of the USVIs. 

  3. As per USVI government protocol, all guests must complete the USVI Travel Screening Portal prior to travel to USVIs. If you have questions about this process, please contact us and we are happy to assist. 

  4. We STRONGLY encourage obtaining travel insurance that covers costs related to contracting covid-19. 

  5. If during your trip you begin to exhibit symptoms of covid-19, we will ask you to socially distance yourself from other guests and crew, and wear a mask when not in your cabin. We understand this is not convenient, but we must respect other guests and our crew. 

These are difficult times for the travel and tourism industry, and we are navigating them with diligence. We sincerely thank you for considering Go Sail Virgin Islands for your sailing adventure.

 
 

Travel Insurance

We STRONGLY encourage obtaining travel insurance that covers costs related to contracting covid-19. 

There are several companies that offer travel insurance. We have found this to be a good option.

How to get to the US Virgin Islands? 

Typically you will get a flight to and from the St Thomas  (STT)- Cyril E. King International Airport St Thomas, USVI. 

Then take a taxi from the airport to Compass Point marina. This about a 40 minute ride and will cost $15 per person and $2 per luggage.  All cab drivers are familiar with the location of Compass Point Marina.  Once you arrive at CPM, you will be looking for our office which has full length banners on either side of the door that say "Virgin Islands Yacht Charters".

How does hurricane weather play into the planning?

The weather is perfect in December through March in the Virgin Islands. This is why we book the bulk of our classes at this time. The easterly winds are 15-20 Knots, weather sunny 85, and dryer than hurricane months ( June - October).
