A fun two-day introduction to sailing
Start Yachting Course
Fancy giving it a go? The RYA ‘Start Yachting’ is a two-day introductory course where you can answer that question you’ve often asked yourself … “what’s it like to go sailing?” You’ve seen the sun-drenched images of the yacht sailing away on the horizon, and always wondered, so here’s your way to find out!
Each day will start at a leisurely 09:30hrs and you’ll first receive a safety briefing. This will ensure you feel relaxed in the knowledge that your personal safety is of paramount to our 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.
Then spend the afternoons sailing in the Bay of Palma. You don’t have to sleep onboard so you can retire to your villa or hotel at the end of each day. You’ll do a little bit of everything, 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!

The course was great, I really liked the instructor, everything was good and I’m very happy 😊 It’s the second course I’ve done with you and I’ll be back for my Coastal skipper when I’ve got the miles. I really like the approach with your courses and your focus on learning, I’m totally satisfied with Aigua.
The course was terrific, Nathan was really, really fantastic! He was on it all the time and always giving us opportunity to learn, he was very aware at all times. Very impressed with his ability to manage four personalities in a small space throughout the week – really excellent at people management. I’ll definitely be coming back and will want to repeat the Day Skipper course again, probably with Nathan. I think the Day Skipper course is great value for the time onboard.
Start Yachting was a really good course and we thoroughly enjoyed it, our instructor was excellent, my son was along for the ride and the instructor was really inclusive and got him involved! The boat was great and the food for lunch was good, it was a relaxed course but we learned a lot. The instructor gave me some really good advice about which course I should do next and I’ve already been looking at dates – I’d definitely recommend Matthew!
I really enjoyed the two courses I did with you. The instructors were very nice and patient. I will definitely recommend the school to anyone who wants to learn a lot and have fun while getting their tickets. It has been a pleasure. Thank you very much for everything you did for me like changing the dates until I got well and all the interest and information you gave me. Have a good day and a very busy season with lots of students.
