Friends and Fellow Sailors: we have been off to a busy start in 2019, already in the midst of our 3rd 10 day sailing course. So far this year we have had students travel from Iceland & India, Tiawan & Texas and many other locations world-wide.
Sharing the "Learn to Sail" experience with a diverse group of like-minded students certainly adds to the value of the SailQuest program. Classmates often remain in contact with each other and organise yacht charters and other join-in sailing events as they continue to develop their sailing skills.
How are you going with your sailing plans? Now is the perfect time to take the next steps in making your sailing dreams come true. Course dates and these regatta events are available now... book your dates today!

SailQuest Update - Response to Corona Virus/COVID-19
As I am sure you are aware, the Corona Virus/COVID-19 is creating international travel issues. At this time, however, it is business as usual at SailQuest Sailing School and all scheduled course dates and sailing events are still running as scheduled. It is a great time of year for sailing here in the Gulf of Thailand!
To keep updated on the situation in Thailand and restrictions regarding incoming visitors, see the Thailand Department of Disease Control website. Travelers should also be aware of any warnings or restrictions that may be posted in the country you will return to following your SailQuest dates.
This situation will certainly effect some who have already booked course or event dates or those who may be thinking of doing so. The SailQuest refund and re-schedule policy remains the same as always. If for any reason you need to cancel your booking, we will issue a full refund of your booking deposit or full payment, minus any bank transfer fees. Or we can hold your payment and you can re-schedule to more convenient dates as your schedule allows.
We are also implementing a daily temperature check policy for instructors and students and encouraging continued good hygiene practices for all. Anyone who is not feeling well or showing symptoms… please stay home!
These are tough times for travelers and business owners alike, but we are all trying to make the best of it.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
Good health and Happy Sailing!
Capt. Tim & the SailQuest team
