The Ski Club's Travel Program organizes and oversees weekend and week long trips!
Our next planned Club Med trip will be in April 201 to the Sandpiper Bay resort in Florida.
THE TRIP IS NOW FULL, WITH 2 CATAMARAN AND 2 MONO HULL YACHTS. THERE ARE ALREADY SEVERAL ON THE WAIT LIST.
SCWDC's next dream vacation is a sailing adventure in the beautiful British Virgin Islands (BVI). We will charter at least four yachts, including two 46' mono hull yachts (6 crew members) and two 48' catamarans (8 crew members). Each yacht will be skippered by a qualified SCWDC captain.
All sleeping berths are for two people. Thus, singles desiring to go on this trip should ideally register with a cabin mate. Otherwise, please contact the trip leader to see what arrangements can be made. Options are to share the berth with someone, pay a single supplement, or sleep in the saloon area, where a comfortable sleeping berth can be made. All yachts have en-suite heads, meaning each cabin has its own head (bathroom)
The mono hull yachts feature 3 separate cabins (each with a marine queen bed) plus a berth in the convertible saloon, and shore-powered air conditioning. See mono hull yacht specifications and details here.
The catamarans feature 4 roomier cabins (each with a marine queen bed), plus a berth in the convertible saloon, and shore-powered air conditioning. See catamaran yacht specifications and details here.
The low member trip price of only $920/pp (mono hull) or $1,470/pp (catamaran) includes the following:
NOTE: We are offering this trip without airfare. This allows attendees to fly down to Tortola before the sailing charter, or to stay on afterwards. It also allows attendees to use frequent flyer miles if available. Right now, Delta is offering round trip air fares from Reagan National (DCA) to Beef Island, Tortola (EIS) for as little as $575/pp. It is also possible to fly into St. Thomas, and then take a high-speed ferry over to Tortola.
PASSPORTS are required, with an expiration date at least 6 months after the trip return date.
Attendees are requested to arrive at Sunsail headquarters no later than 4 PM on April 21, 2020, for briefings, provisioning review and check outs. At 6 PM, we will board our respective yachts, conduct yacht inspections and settle in for our first night aboard.
Additional notes: Food and beverage expenses are not included as each yacht and crew will have to decide their own food/restaurant plan. Figure on approximately $200/ pp for the week, but actual costs may vary widely. Advance provisioning and starter kits are available from Sunsail. We have estimated fuel costs for each yacht, but actual costs may vary based on wind and weather.

"Masuria" means nature out of an old storybook: black forests, blue lakes, smooth hills and charming villages. Thousands of bigger and smaller lakes spread over the landscape sparkle like jewels in the midst of the widespread forests.
The Masurian Lake District is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Poland. A paradise for white storks. Eels, pikes, and perches swim in those lakes and the forest offers wolves, lynxes, raccoon dogs and so called polish horses a living space. The peacefulness in the huge primeval forest, the wide pasture land, the crystal clear lakes and rivers and the old-established alleys further engrave the landscape. The safeguard of the environmental heritage and the environment-friendly development are priorities and so far, five parks and numerous nature preserves established.
Without a doubt, Masuria as the green lung of Poland counts to the most precious bicycle and hiking regions in Europe. A bicycle tour is the most attractive and active form of rest. Thanks to our offer, our guests can get to know and enjoy the great hospitality of the inhabitants in this region. With our help you will discover the magic of Masuria with its hidden mystical edges.
We will only be able to take 24 passengers so it is important to sign up as early as possible.
