Sailing Courses in Greece

Island Sailing is a British fully accredited Royal Yachting Association Training Centre offering a comprehensive range of RYA sailing courses from our Ionian base at Lefkas marina in Greece.

Exclusive use of a yacht with private sailing tuition

We offer private tuition sailing courses for couples, families and friends of all abilities. Private tuition means you don’t have to share a boat with people you don’t know. Having your own instructor on a yacht by yourselves allows us to offer more individual attention than is often possible on a group course. Each member of your party can take a course that's right for their level of experience.  We only use the most modern, highly equipped, spacious yachts you can enjoy a bit of luxury as well as plenty of space and comfort.


Our Instructors

All our RYA instructors are young, British talented sailors and teachers who have been chosen for their professional and friendly approach. We have a mix of male and female instructors in our team who have been sailing for many years. They all enjoy sharing their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for sailing and have taught people of all ages and abilities and will ensure that your sailing course in Greece is a valuable learning experience. Your instructor requires a cabin onboard but they always become welcome additions on the yachts they sail.


RYA Practical Sailing Courses

Our RYA practical non-tidal sailing courses run every week from May until October and are suitable for couples, families or groups of friends.  We offer a range of courses from our RYA training centre base at Lefkas marina on the Greek Ionian island of Lefkas for absolute beginners looking to undertake a formal course and gain an RYA sailing certificate through to experienced sailors wanting to develop their skills and gain a recognised RYA qualification.

All RYA sailing courses have a formal syllabus that you will follow and the qualifications are gained through continuous assessment throughout the week. Whilst the RYA stipulate that courses are run over a minimum of 5 days we usually run them over 6 days and the yacht is available for 7 nights. This allows us to offer comprehensive instruction whilst learning in the Mediterranean sunshine, warm waters and unique beauty of the Ionian islands of Greece. In order to cover the RYA course syllabus we will set a route and visit different ports and bays during the week on the various Ionian islands.


Yachts and Prices

We have a range of modern yachts which are the latest models, spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped with everyting you will need onboard, including the all important safety equipment. With a choice of yachts we can offer you the most ideal layout and space. Your instructor requires a cabin onboard and always becomes a welcome addition on the yachts they sail. Prices are per yacht per week (not per person) including RYA Instructor and RYA sailing courses with 7 nights onboard.
