RYA Start Yachting

RYA Start Yachting is a two-day introduction to yacht sailing for complete beginners. By the end of the course you will have experienced steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework and be aware of safety on board. Holders of the Start Yachting certificate can go on to complete the Competent Crew course in a reduced time of three days or two weekends.

Cloud Nine Sailing’s skipper Emma works with our friends Seafarer in Greece to give you your first taste of yacht sailing in an idyllic environment. In the Ionian, we can guarantee that you will visit some interesting places – and even if you find sailing is not for you, you will have enjoyed some island hopping, maybe swum in the sea, and most likely explored a taverna or two too!

We often run Start Yachting for people who are already in the Ionian on a land-based holiday – and we can arrange a villa for you too if you prefer.

So come and join us – what do you have to lose?


Sounds fun!
