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. You can also combine a sailing course with an Island Sailing flotilla holiday or a sail and shore-based holiday.

Exclusive use of a yacht with private sailing tuition

We offer private tuition sailing courses for couples, families and groups of 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. It also ensures that we can tailor courses to meet the specific needs of everyone onboard – whatever their ages and abilities.

Having an instructor to yourselves allows you to progress at your own pace and as we only use the most modern, highly equipped, spacious yachts you can enjoy privacy as well as plenty of space and comfort. Your instructor usually requires a cabin onboard but they always become welcome additions on the yachts they sail.


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 are all graduates in their mid 20's to mid 30's who have been sailing for many years. They all enjoy sharing their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for sailing whilst making sure you have a fun and relaxing sailing holiday in the Ionian islands. They have taught sailing to people of all ages and abilities and will ensure that your sailing course in Greece has the right balance of being a valuable learning experience as well as a unique holiday.


RYA Practical Sailing Courses

Our RYA practical non-tidal sailing courses run every week from May until the end of October and are great 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 try sailing for the first time through to experienced sailors wanting to fine tune their skills and gain a recognised RYA qualification.

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. 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.


Yachts and Prices

We have a range of modern yachts with 2, 3 or 4 cabins. All the yachts are spacious, comfortable, stylish 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 for your specific needs. Your instructor usually requires a cabin onboard.

Prices are per yacht per week (not per person) including RYA Instructor and RYA sailing courses with 7 nights onboard.

We offer Navathome RYA Online Day Skipper Theory and Coastal/Yachtmaster Theory courses with the support of an RYA Instructor. RYA theory courses can be taken all year round and allow you to work at your own speed and in your own time.  If you take a practical and a theory course with us continuity of tuition is guaranteed as the instructors supporting the theory courses are the same instructors who teach the practical courses in Greece.
