Looking for Sober Sailing Charters

I am new to this forum, so please forgive my ineptness. I am interested in finding quality sailing charters (smaller groups) in the Caribbean with folks who are serious about recovery but who "wear the cloak lightly." Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Lili, and welcome to CF.

You might consider putting together your own group and hiring a crewed charter. The British Virgin Islands is a great place for that sort of thing.

Aloha LiLi. Unfortunately this hobby does not have too many people in recovery...yet. The only website I found was in San Carlos, Mexico

Welcome to CF LiLi. Sorry, no suggestions, but I'm sure you will find a group. If you choose not to partake, people will respect your choice. Best of Luck to you!

Re: Looking for Sober Sailing Charters

I wonder whether the islands might be a tough cruise for someone trying to steer clear of alcohol, given the party atmosphere that attracts some to that part of the world. Would there perhaps be cruising grounds that lack the party atmosphere that would be a better bet for the poster?
