“Getting the most from your Ionian Sailing Holiday”

Corfu Sea School is a British  RYA approved sail training centre providing a wide range of courses from its base in Corfu, Greece. We operate all year round and pride ourselves on offering relaxed yet comprehensive tuition in all aspects of yachting including sailing, navigation and seamanship. All our courses are run on modern, fully equipped yachts that meet the stringent requirements of the MCA Safety Code. Whether you are a complete novice, improver or 'old hand' looking to gain a specific qualification we are confident that we can provide a course to suit you.

Our courses have been designed and are run by Steve Hills, a RYA Yacht master Instructor, who has sailed in this area for many years. Steve (or one of his fellow Instructors) will join you on your yacht for a pre-agreed number of days at the beginning of your holiday (don’t worry about providing your Instructor with a berth, he is used to sleeping on deck!) and will structure the course to your individual needs.

During each course you will visit a number of local harbours and anchorages, practice new techniques, extend your cruising range and gain greater confidence in your navigation and boat handling skills.

All our courses are designed to be fun with an strong emphasis on safety. All courses are conducted by RYA qualified, English Instructors. At the end of each course certificates will be awarded.

We pride ourselves on offering the broadest range of RYA courses to suit all levels of experience plus a number of unique Corfu Sea School tuition packages. For all courses, our ratio for teaching is 1  Instructor for up to 5 candidates. Click on the titles below to find the right course for you:

The RYA sail training scheme provides tuition for all levels of experience and ability. It is a progressive process, in other words, you work your way through the levels over a period of time. You can enter the scheme at any level (provided you have the necessary experience for the course chosen). Complete beginners should start with the Competent Crew course. Thereafter, the syllabus progresses through Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper and Yacht master. All these courses also have associated shore based theory courses which, amongst other things,  teach candidates navigation, seamanship and meteorology.

Our teaching ratio for practical courses is 5:1.  So, if you can put together a group of 5, we will deduct the course fees for one person from your total bill. This offer is only valid for group bookings (traveling together at the same time) and is for any bookings except  for arrivals between 1st July and  31st  August
