RYA Sail Training Courses in Greece
Learn to sail in a relaxed and friendly environment with British RYA Instructors based in the sunny Greek Islands. Whether you are new to sailing or looking to improve, there isn’t a better place to learn to sail, with beautiful weather, warm seas and gentle winds.
We provide a range of seven day RYA sailing courses for those looking to learn to sail and skipper their own yacht. Feel free to give us a call to discuss at any time on 020 8459 8787
Our RYA Day Skipper is taught over seven days, and this allows us to take a relaxed approach to training. We provide you with the theory to study at home, so you will arrive in Greece fully prepared for the practical course.
The RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper Combined Course is taught over fourteen days. You will learn the basics of sailing, all the way to taking control of your own yacht. The course comes complete with all the theory you’ll need, and by the end of the fortnight you’ll be confident to sail your own yacht.
These courses are for advanced sailors and we offer them on request. Please contact our partner sailing school at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to apply.
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.
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!

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.
