Learn to Sail on flotilla in Greece

With sheltered water and straight-forward navigation, the Ionian flotilla in Greece is ideal for beginners who wish to start sailing their own yacht on flotilla. We can offer an instructor on board your flotilla yacht for 3 or 6 days to build your confidence as skipper of your own flotilla yacht. This is ideal for couples and families who would like to join in a flotilla experience but need some instruction. 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 sailing skills. This is not an RYA accredited course. If you would like to gain an RYA qualification then please see our RYA Courses.

These courses are great for families to learn to sail together but remember the instructor will not look after young children so one parent may only get to crew standard. This is also a good "refresher" course if you haven't skippered for a while. While parents refresh their skills, younger children can learn safety onboard and teenagers can become useful crew. You will have to allocate a cabin for the instructor.

6 Day Introduction to Sailing Course

The 6-day flotilla course is designed as an accessible and enjoyable introduction to sailing for families and friends to determine if the world of sailing is for you. The aim of the course is 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. This course will cover ropework, basic navigation skills, safety on board, sailing techniques, mooring and anchoring.

This is not an RYA course but the experience gained should allow you to progress to the RYA Day Skipper Theory and Practical courses without further time on the water. Please speak with our sales consultants for more details.

Suggested minimum pre-course experience: None, suitable for complete novices and anyone wanting to start sailing.
Price: £1200/yacht


Prices are for an instructor on board your yacht for 6 days. This cost is in addition to the flotilla cost. Please see Ionian flotilla page for more details. Food for the skipper is extra. (Subject to instructor availability).
