No problem!

  We are proud to announce the introduction of a unique new package that combines a week’s diploma sailing course without to lose your holidays on a charter yacht.

 Corfu Sea School, the only Royal Yachting Association (RYA) approved sail training centre in Western Greece, has partnered with Corfu Yachting, one of the most reputable charter companies in the Mediterranean, to create this new initiative.

 Charter companies, their insurers and national maritime authorities require that at least one people on a charter yacht hold a recognised sailing qualification. The diplomas awarded through the RYA sail training scheme have for long been accepted as the benchmark of sailing certification.

  Our one or two week package provides a modern, fully equipped cruising yacht of between 33 till 50 feet, together with a RYA Instructor who will spend the week onboard with you. Up to 6 people can be accommodated on each weekly programme. Under instruction, you will learn how to manoeuvre, navigate and sail your yacht. Complete beginners will undertake the Competent Crew syllabus, whilst those with some experience will follow the Day Skipper (non-tidal) programme. Our only requirement is that at least one person in your party has some rudimentary experience (circa 100 miles as crew in a yacht or intermediate level dinghy sailing). In the event that none of your party passes the Day Skipper qualification (unlikely, as we boast an 85% pass rate) a qualified Skipper will be provided for your second week as well.

 For the second week your Instructor will help you plan a route, advise on weather conditions and provide some local knowledge, then it is all over to you!

 Each package begins and ends in Gouvia Marina on the Greek island of Corfu. From here you set sail into the Ionian Sea, one of the best cruising areas in the Mediterranean encompassing many of Greece’s most famous harbours and bays including, Paxos, Kefallonia, and Ithaca. Conditions are less boisterous than other parts of Greece and considered idyll for learning to sail.
