For beginner sailors the choice of suitable course, sailing area and sailing school can feel overwhelming and it is difficult to get clear answers to the basic questions. Below are some of the common themes we get asked about by our students before they come to Greece and which our team is happy to answer to ensure you have the best experience possible while learning to sail.
Yes you can! The RYA licenses are known and accepted all around the world.
Yes, you will sail from Aegina on Monday and return Friday again on Aegina. In the meanwhile, your cabin is your 'floating room'. All yachts are equipped with showers (cold and hot water), toilets and have full kitchen with fridge and even freezer!Contact
Yes, the footage is amazing of the places you will sail! No use of drones from the yacht. It is at your own risk and must be operated within the regulation and license requirements of Greek law. Please make yourself aware of these before use.
With a hands on and ‘can do’ approach to learning on these practical courses you will not only learn the skills necessary to be a useful member of the crew but also experience taking charge of the helm, leaving the berth, sailing, navigating, decision making and arriving in port with the guidance and reassurance of our instructors.
Yes. All boats have double cabins, lots of space, comfort, and storage for all you bring with you.

Email us! We do not have an online booking schedule, we are very fast to reply usually within an hour, sometimes weekends this could be a little longer as we are a busy school with many boats on a turnaround for the next courses. Book ahead for the best chance of suitable availability. Last minute booking is possible as our yachts have a mixed number of cabins, so do not hesitate to email or call us.
We provide towels to use after showers. If you are going to swim every day, the best thing to do is to bring a beach towel of your own.
Yes. One set is on board solely for use in underwater inspection of the yacht.
