Learn to sail or develop your skills further on an approved RYA Course

The Royal Yachting Association runs a series of progressive courses to help you develop your sailing experience and qualifications. It’s probably best to do some research on the RYA website. then talk to me for an unbiased opinion about the best places to sail and companies to book your RYA course with. Their online brochure can be accessed here. I have trusted contacts in the UK, Corfu, Gibraltar, Portugal and elsewhere for RYA Approved Sailing Schools.
