Can we learn to sail as a family?

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.

"We chartered Icarus to celebrate a big birthday and could not have made a better selection. A beautiful boat with excellent skipper and hostess who will make you feel at home within minutes and you will wish for nothing. Robert is an expert skipper and teacher if you want to get involved, as well as having tremendous knowledge and experience of the area. The yacht is spotless, cabins are spacious and well equipped, the deck is spacious and sunbeds are laid out to sunbathe in comfort. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!!"
