The RYA Start Yachting syllabus is designed to help you find your ‘sea legs’, and for you to see if sailing is for you over a relaxed two days onboard a sail cruising yacht in the Bay of Palma. A safety brief at first to ensure you feel safe and comfortable around the yacht, then the lines will be cast off and you’ll be away for a day sail discovering how the wind works with the sails, how to helm, the parts of the yacht, seamanship skills and the basics of sailing. As soon as the wind catches the sail and she starts to gently heel you will be enchanted by the movement of the yacht through the water, the breeze in your hair, sun on your face and the freedom of movement. It really is an amazing experience.

The Start Yachting syllabus has been specifically designed as an introduction to sailing. Your ability after the course is a basic knowledge of yachting and, we hope, the start of many happy sailing days. We are here to help you feel comfortable on a sailing yacht and to capture your imagination so that you’ll later join us for a full live-aboard five-day experience. The two ‘day sails’ will take you out into Palma Bay, with an anchorage stop each midday for a light Mediterranean style lunch and, of course, a swim if you wish.
