First Sailing Holidays for Beginners

Want to Learn to Sail?  We believe in ‘learning by doing’, so even if you come purely for a holiday, you will learn new skills effortlessly, as part of the process of going sailing and living at sea. 

If you are a complete beginner, a dinghy sailor who wants to try live-aboard cruising  or a newcomer to boats with bowsprits, then we have a huge choice of day sails, taster weekends, Royal Yachting Association (RYA) courses, or weeks away exploring amazing destinations. Leap into a Caribbean island hopping voyage and we will train you to be adventure crew as soon as you arrive, or go for the structured learning of a RYA sailing course.
