2. Our Convenient Location

Aegean Sailing School Sailing AreaOur base is on the pretty island of Aegina. We’re close enough to Athens to be convenient for flights and visits to the city but we’re a world away in atmosphere. You’ll experience authentic Greek island life throughout your time with us. Find out more about our location.

3. Our Beautiful Unspoilt Sailing Area

Aegina sailing areaOur sailing area includes both picturesque islands and attractive mainland ports. It’s relatively unspoilt by foreign tourism. You’ll visit different places each day, including some that are ‘off the beaten track’ and easier to reach by sea than by road. Find out more about our sailing area.

4. Our Expert Instructors & Tuition

Our instructors are highly experienced, extremely practical sailors, with sociable friendly personalities. We don’t employ inexperienced or newly qualified instructors. You can be assured that you will get the quality of tuition you want from someone who knows the sailing area and has lots of expertise in teaching as well as in sailing.

5. Our comfortable & Well-Equipped Yachts

Aegean Sailing School YachtsWe use big, comfortable, well-maintained yachts. They are dedicated teaching boats with many items you won’t find on a charter yacht, including a small library of sailing books. If you’re coming alone you’ll get your own cabin; we don’t expect students to share a cabin with a stranger or to sleep in the saloon. Find out more about why people love our yachts.

6. International and Inclusive

International sailing coursesWe have students of all ages from all over the world – over 82 different nationalities to date. You’re never too young or too old to enjoy yachting – we cater for everyone from toddlers to pensioners (although we don’t mix families with other adult clients). If you have limitations on your mobility or other issues – you’re welcome too. Contact us to find out what we can provide for you.

7. An Extremely Personal Service
