The RYA “sailing courses” cover a variety of training sections. From beginners to experienced sailors and from recreational to professional skippers. The beginners usually start with a 5 Days course: “RYA Competent Crew”. They spend five days onboard a training yacht where they learn the basics of sailing. For those who want to move on to the next step and become skippers, the next course they need to join is the: “RYA Day Skipper”. Upon successful completion, they have the knowledge and the skills to skipper a yacht safely in familiar waters. The next course is the “RYA Coastal Skipper” followed by the “RYA Yachtmaster Offshore & Coastal”. All these practical courses are very technical. The students spend their days on handling techniques and navigation together with other candidates. At the end of each course and between they need to build up their confidence and improve their skippering skills. Our “Mile Building Sailing Trip” is designed especially for this. If you want to improve your skills and gain confidence while sailing around Greece have a look below.
Our “Sail Around Greece” mile-building sailing trip starts from Corfu and finishes in Lefkada after four weeks and 1.200nm. You will get fully involved in the daily routine ( e.g sailing, navigation, passage planning) and you will visit the most beautiful Greek islands. Our yachts are fully equipped and our skippers are RYA Qualified instructors. The “passages” of the trip will be longer than the ones of the practical courses. You will sail and navigate at least one long night passage and you will be in charge of the yacht ( with some guidance from the skipper) Combine training with holidays and discover the hidden Greek Islands.
