1. Adventure Brings You Together

Apparently, couples are more attracted to each other when they're out with another couple. That's right -- the concept isn't new: making friends with like-minded people will bring you closer together. Adventure sailing courses are great for this. You'll bond over learning new things and enjoying downtime together. When the course is over, you'll be part of a global network of young people, making it easy to find cool couples to join you on future sailing adventures.
3. Beats a Regular Vacation
Lying on the beach may be fun, but it's pretty much like every other vacation. If you want a really memorable experience, an adventure sailing course is great for this. You'll enjoy all the regular holiday experiences -- nightlife, beach parties, and exploring new places -- but you'll also be levelling up your skills, trying things you've never done before. As a student Paul (38yo, married, from DC) wrote on a Tripadvisor review after recently finishing a course, "...if you made it this far, just go book."
4. Great Photo Opportunities

Let's be honest, capturing some great shots is an important part of most vacations. Although research shows over 40% of millenials now choose destinations based on their 'Instagrammability', most adventurous people just want the adventure. It's great to simply capture a fantastic adventure, which you can then share with family and friends. When you take an adventure sailing course, there'll be plenty of opportunities to snap cute candids of your other half maneuvering a boat, silhouettes of the two of you at sea, and group photos of you and all your new friends.
