Learning in the Sun, with us...
Our RYA sail training is provided in conjunction with Corfu Sea School. We run our courses out of Plataria in the north Ionian. Corfu Sea School has been teaching in Greece since 2001, and is a well respected RYA training centre. We first teamed up with them in 2010 to provide certified RYA tuition to meet the growing demand for professional training, to gain valuable qualifications...while sailing in the sun!
Why choose a course with Sailing Holidays?
Sailing Holidays is a family owned business. We use our own yachts and take full advantage of our huge support team to make sure the yachts are in the best condition for your course. All our instructors work as flotilla skippers before training to be an instructor, so they know and love the area in which they teach. Our instructors are chosen for their passion, experience and patience, as well as their ability to make your time in the Greek islands thoroughly enjoyable.
Our training yachts
Our courses are taught on our dedicated training boats, the Dufour 36's. These are spacious modern cruising yachts set up exclusively for teaching, and are equipped with all the essentials. We use proper 'slab reefing' main sails, so you can learn how to hoist, set and handle a conventional sail. The yachts are furnished with new modern instruments, such as GPS, chart-plotter, Navtex and wireless wind, speed, and depth transducers. They have modern galleys which include a double sink, large fridge, and oven. Each boat is fitted with clean, modern heads and a holding tank.
