If you're a complete novice you may want to book an Royal Yachting Association (RYA) course. In your 1st week you'll gain a perfect introduction to life onboard and achieve RYA Competent crew. Or learn to sail on flotilla with a 6-day instructor onboard your yacht - perfect for couples and families trying out the unique experience of holidaying aboard your own yacht.

Gain an RYA qualification ...

Beginners will start with RYA Competent Crew, but if you have crewing or motorboat experience sign up for RYA Day Skipper. Adults can book a cabin on a shared yacht at an RYA Recognised Training centres in Gibraltar, Greece and Turkey. Families can book exclusive use of a training yacht in Greece and Turkey. Maximum 5 students on each training yacht. But remember the instructor will not look after young children so best for children over 12.

Brush up your sailing skills ...

A 3-day flotilla course on flotilla in Greece is ideal if you sailed a while ago or you have crewing or motorboat experience or you are a keen dinghy sailor at Club level. On successful completion of the course you will be able to skipper a yacht within our flotilla under the guidance of our lead crew, practising your new skills as skipper.

Singles are welcome on the RYA courses run by the RYA Recognised Training centres in Gibraltar.  You will share a tuition yacht with other students (maximum 5 students per yacht).

Beginners will do RYA Competent Crew course which provides a general introduction to yacht cruising. You will be shown how to tie knots, steer the yacht, handle the sails, moor up, use the anchor, basic navigation and how to be a welcome and useful crew member.

To do your RYA Day Skipper practical course you will need at least 5 days crewing experience on sailing yachts and have either completed the Day Skipper shore-based course or have a good knowledge of basic navigation. This practical course gives you the chance to take charge on short passages under instruction with advice and help from the instructor. You'll also get plenty of chance to practice mooring up in many different situations. By the end of the course you should have enough experience to skipper a yacht in a safe and seamanlike manner on short daytime passages.

Bear in mind that you will need a competent crew if you want to charter a yacht in the future so why not bring a friend along to learn how to crew. 

Families can add an instructor to their flotilla yacht. This is a great for families to learn to sail together but remember the instructor will not look after young children and you will have to allocate a cabin for the instructor.

Beginners will need a 6-day flotilla course on any of our flotillas in Greece. This course is designed to take students with little or no experience to the level that they can skipper a yacht within our flotilla under the guidance of our lead crew. Plan a second week sailing with the flotilla, practising your new skills, or return later in the season. 

If you have crewing or motoryacht experience or you are a keen dinghy sailor at club level, you could take your own yacht on flotilla in Greece and add an instructor for a 3-day flotilla course. This course will increase your confidence and cover basic navigation skills, sailing techniques, mooring and anchoring.  This is also a good "refresher" course if you haven't skippered for a while.

If you want to gain an RYA qualification, you can have exclusive use of the tuition yacht at the RYA Recognised centres in Göcek (Turkey), Kefalonia (Greece) or Gibraltar. For RYA courses  a maximum of 5 students can be onboard, but some students can do Day Skipper course while others do Competent Crew course and some need not take part in any course. The course is not suitable for children under 12.

Couples willing to share a yacht with other students can share a tuition yacht in Göcek or Gibraltar. If you don't want to share or there are 2 couples, you can have exclusive use of the tuition yacht. For RYA courses only a maximum of 5 students can be onboard, but some students can do Day Skipper course while others do Competent Crew course  and some need not take part in any course.

Beginners will do RYA Competent Crew course which provides a general introduction to yacht cruising. You will be shown how to tie knots, steer the yacht, handle the sails, moor up, use the anchor, basic navigation and how to be a welcome and useful crew member.

By the end of the course you should have enough experience to skipper a yacht in a safe and seamanlike manner on short daytime passages.

If you want to learn on flotilla in Greece, beginners will need a 6-day flotilla course  but if you just need to brush up your skippering skills you may only need a a 3-day flotilla course. These courses are designed to take you to the level that they can skipper a yacht within our flotilla under the guidance of our lead crew. Plan a second week sailing with the flotilla, practising your new skills, or return later in the season. As you have your own yacht, why not invite another couple along to share the cost?

"We are back from our week's sailing the Dodecanese islands in Greece. We would like to thank Nautilus Yachting once again for the efficient way you handled our booking and all the team at Kiriacoulis in Kos who made us very welcome. This is our ninth year away and our yacht performed well in some good sailing weather. Looking forward to next year ."
