Start Yachting with a fun two-day introduction to sailing – fancy giving it a go?
Start Yachting Course
The RYA ‘Start Yachting’ course is a two-day introductory course where you can answer that question you’ve often asked yourself … “what’s it like to go sailing?”
Seen the sun-drenched images of the yacht sailing away on the horizon, and always wondered what that feels like? Here’s your way to find out!
So, how does the Start Yachting course go?
Both days will start at a leisurely 09:30hrs and you’ll receive a safety briefing first. This will ensure you feel relaxed in the knowledge that your personal safety is of paramount to your instructor. Throw off the bowlines and set sail into Palma Bay for a morning of sailing techniques and understanding how the sails work with the wind.
Around lunchtime, you will drop the anchor over white sand in a sheltered anchorage to enjoy a Mediterranean style lunch onboard. Of course, you can take a swim should the waters be at a comfortable temperature, but please be sure to pack a beach towel.
After a relaxed lunch you’ll spend the afternoons sailing in the Bay of Palma. Sleeping onboard is optional, so you can retire to your villa or hotel at the end of each day if you prefer. You’ll do a little bit of everything over the two days, from rope work to helming and from hoisting sails to changing tack; it’s a great taster of what could potentially become the love of your life!

Just completed the Dayskipper Sail Combo with John O´Hara and Geraint Edwards as our brilliant, super competent and friendly teachers.
Thank´s very much to you guys, learned so much in the last 9 days, was a great pleasure to me!
Just completed a day skipper and competent crew course with my husband. Brilliant organisation from start to finish. Everyone very friendly and helpful, John-Paul and Rachael in the office. Instructor, Franco, very professional and patient! Perfect way to learn to sail in a lovely environment. Can’t recommend this company enough.
My wife and I took the Day Skipper Sail course with Nathan. We went in a little nervous but by the end of the week, we learned so much that we felt fully confident in our first upcoming charter. Nathan is a very professional and skilled and patient instructor. The staff was accommodating with very good communication before and after the course so we knew what to expect and all necessary details.
Brilliant sailing school I did the Day Skipper course for 5 days and the teacher Hilly was amazing. Learned so much over the 5 days and would love to return to do another course in the future
