Most of our practical sailing courses take the form of a five day cruise around local islands, harbours and bays (this is a RYA requirement). This involves sleeping on your school yacht, in otherwords it is not possible to 'day sail' and return to a hotel every night. You will also be expected to help in the galley, preparing meals and cleaning up. It is all part of yachting!
On any of our practical motor cruising and powerboat courses your school vessel will return to its marina base each evening (although there is a requirement for one evenings night exercises on some courses). Please note, you will be expected to find your own accommodation for the duration of theses courses.
Our practical courses are run with the following maximum Student to Instructor ratios:
Sail Cruising: 5:1
Motor Cruising: 4:1
Our courses are suitable for people of average fitness and agility. Please ask if you feel that your current physical condition may be outside this definition. We look forward to welcoming you in Corfu.
