Yacht Charter Company Sunsail Earns "Outstanding" Award

Outstanding School Award, ranking it within the top 20 out of 300 professionally accredited ASA sailing schools

By: YV&C News Desk

The American Sailing Association, the venerable 20-year-old leader in U.S. sailing education, knows a thing or two about sail instruction - it's the largest network of sailing schools in the U.S. In a recently conducted poll of students who received ASA certification, Sunsail's BVI Sailing School in Tortola is recognized for a 2005 Outstanding School Award, ranking it within the top 20 out of 300 professionally accredited ASA sailing schools in the U.S. and Caribbean.


What's more, Sunsail BVI instructor Matt Holt is honored as one of the top 25 instructors out of 2,000 in the ASA network. This is the first year Sunsail has been recognized in an ASA Outstanding School or Instructor Award, which began in the late 1990s, according to Charlie Nobles, ASA executive director. “Matt Holt and Sunsail's BVI Sailing School are at the top of their game and deserve the recognition. Those schools that failed to reach the top tier now have an incentive to do better next year,” Nobles said. Over 14,000 students take ASA-accredited sailing courses each year.

Adds Peter Cook, general manager of Sunsail based in Annapolis, “This is a huge accomplishment for our new sailing school, started in 2005. We are pleased that Matt, who has been a sailing instructor for over 20 years, is recognized for his hard work, dedication and enthusiasm for getting the school up and running and setting a standard for other ASA sailing schools.

“We not only prepare students to bareboat charter a Sunsail yacht, we introduce them to a lifestyle sport that stays with them the rest of their lives,” Cook said.

Sunsail offers a wide choice of water-based vacations with nearly 1,000 yachts in 30 locations worldwide, ASA sailing schools, seven watersports beach resorts in the Mediterranean, plus the Colonna Sailing Resort in the Caribbean.
