Sailing Courses in Greece

Island Sailing is a British fully accredited Royal Yachting Association Training Centre offering a comprehensive range of practical RYA sailing courses from our base at Lefkas marina on Lefkas, Greece as well as online RYA theory courses.

Take a sailing course in Greece and enjoy the Greek islands in the sun with a full range of courses to choose from for complete beginners through to experienced sailors. You can also combine a sailing course with an Island Sailing flotilla holiday or a sail and shore based holiday.

Our practical sailing courses are run at a relaxed pace, usually over 6 days and the yacht is available for 7 nights. This allows us to offer comprehensive instruction with plenty of time to enjoy the Mediterranean sunshine, warm waters and unique beauty of the Ionian islands of Greece.

Our British RYA instructors have been chosen for their professional and friendly approach. They will ensure that your sailing course in the Greek Ionian islands is a valuable and fun learning experience. As an RYA fully accredited Training Centre all our instructors are qualified to teach the RYA courses for sail cruising that result in RYA certification.

During the week you will sail around the Ionian islands with plenty of time to explore coves, beaches and secluded bays and discover pretty villages and breathtaking scenery. Our specially chosen itineraries ensure you visit the best bays, the most beautiful villages and the nicest tavernas sailing to a different Greek Ionian island destination each day.


Exclusive use of a yacht with private tuition

Whether you are a beginner or would like to gain more experience and qualifications whilst sailing with your family or friends having a yacht for your exclusive use with your own personal Island Sailing instructor makes an ideal sailing holiday.

Courses are tailored to meet the needs of all the crew whatever their ages and abilities. When you have exclusive use of a yacht your family or friends choose whether they want to take a formal course or not - it's entirely up to each individual. With a maximum of five people learning per yacht this gives time for individual tuition and attention to all on board.
