If you want to tie it in with a course, contact Offshore Sailing School. They run courses on boats from The Moorings, which is a first-class operation out of Tortola. I have no commercial connection with either but am a very satisfied Offshore graduate.

Conch has been good to charter from. TMM is too. I don't know whether either one offers sailing lessons

+1 for Offshore Sailing School. Brought my wife there when she first learned to sail and I did the course with her. Having been away from sailing for a long time, it was a great refresher for me too. Their Fast Track to Liveaboard Cruising took her from having never sailed in her life, to being a pretty capable coastal sailor in a week. But, be advised, you are there to learn, not to snorkel. Days can be long, particularly the first couple.

We used Conch Charters in April 2010 and had a great experience. We're going again with Conch the end of January. My American Sailing Association instructor highly recommended Conch - he has chartered with them at least once a year for many years.
