Learn to Sail Holidays

Learn to Sail holidays are perfect if you would like a flotilla sailing holiday but have little or no previous sailing experience.

If you are looking for a gentle, fun introduction to sailing with plenty of time to spend relaxing and enjoying the Greek islands a learn to sail flotilla holiday offers the perfect balance. Sail with one of our young, friendly and professional skippers and get involved sailing the yacht, swimming in bays and sunbathing on deck as much or as little as you want.


How a Learn to Sail holiday works

Complete beginners can learn to sail in one of our Ionian flotillas, safe in the knowledge that an experienced skipper is on hand so you can learn the basics of sailing and get the most from your flotilla holiday.

Sail on one of our modern yachts at your own pace, drop anchor for a swim or snorkel in the clear warm waters. Explore coves, beaches and secluded bays and discover pretty villages and breath-taking scenery. During the week you will visit all the best ports, bays, beaches, restaurants and tavernas.

Our friendly and professional skippers will provide informal sailing tuition and ensure that you have a gentle introduction to sailing in a relaxed, safe and fun way. There may be some of you who want to learn and practice more than others and that’s OK. Learn to Sail holidays are available for up to 5 people per yacht.


Exclusive use of a yacht with private sailing tuition

We offer private tuition for couples, families and groups of friends. Private tuition means you don’t have to share a boat with people you don’t know and having your own instructor on a yacht by yourselves allows us to offer more individual attention. We have the widest choice of modern, highly specified and award winning yachts.


Our Skipper Instructors

All our skippers are young, talented sailors and teachers who have been chosen for their professional and friendly approach. They all hold the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualification or higher and we have a mix of male and females in our team. They all enjoy sharing their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for sailing whilst making sure you have a fun and relaxing sailing holiday. They have taught sailing to people of all ages and abilities and will ensure you enjoy a valuable learning experience as well as a unique holiday. Your instructor requires a cabin onboard but they always become welcome additions on the yachts they sail.


The Ionian Islands

The Ionian islands of Greece are renowned for their ideal sailing conditions and perfect for beginners learning to sail with so many safe bays to drop anchor and friendly town quays to visit. The sailing conditions are extremely favourable with consistent and steady winds with plenty of fun sailing to be had without the need to worry about anything too challenging coming your way. The Ionian islands are great for children and adults to learn to sail, explore and relax.


Yachts & Prices

All the yachts are the latest models and are fully equipped with everything you will need onboard. They have lots of space above and below deck with fully fitted galley kitchens, toilets and showers and full size private cabins. The yachts have all the important safety equipment and are immaculately presented.
