Learning to sail on holiday

Don’t know your hull from your boom? There’s no need to worry if you don’t know the lingo or haven’t even set foot in a boat before. Qualified instructors at our beach resorts help make the process of learning the ropes feel effortless and safe. 

You can learn to sail on holiday by taking part in a relevant course for your age group and skill level. Adult and youth courses are split into three distinct levels based on where you believe you’re at. By the end of the week, you can become a confident skipper when taking to the water like a pro.

Learning to sail in the Mediterranean  

With the lush clear skies and waters as your backdrop, you’ll find yourself learning to sail on holiday in envious surroundings. Our beach resorts all have their unique advantages when someone wants to learn to sail. 

Lemnos Beach Resort is arguably one of the most stunning locations to learn to sail in the Mediterranean with a stretching bay.

Kamari Beach Resort has an uninterrupted beachfront that lends itself to learning turns.

Paleros Beach Resort has a natural swooping bay that makes the most of a natural breeze. 

Phokaia Beach Resort has a west-facing bay that picks up gentle winds in the morning, making it great for absolute beginners.

Free tuition or RYA courses - you choose

We have free tuition on offer for all guests who simply want to enjoy a taste of the sailor life. Alternatively, for those that want to take things a bit more seriously and would love the opportunity to learn how to sail on holiday, we have a range of RYA courses.

Dinghy foiling

A new sailing style that has gained popularity in recent years, foiling is a unique and exciting experience that has to be seen to be believed. Using a special fin on your board, riders get the feeling of gliding up out of the water.

If you are a competent dinghy sailor at an intermediate level, you can learn to foil at our resorts in Greece. Glide across the water with increased speed in this exhilarating new sailing technique.
