Our Sailing Courses

Unlike most other schools, our practical sailing courses can be taken over five, six or seven days, on a full  live-aboard basis, with a maximum student to instructor ratio of 4:1. This less crowded approach, gives you more time to practice and absorb information, resulting in a higher level of expertise at the end of your course, particularly on a seven day course, which also provides more time for leisure activities in this truly amazing part of the World. We also offer private charter 'Master Class' courses for exclusive use of the boat with more personal tuition and optional Thai cook on-board to take care of all the galley work and help with general crew duties.

Our Sailing Holidays

You can book a 'Join-In' holiday, sharing all the on board duties with other guests, or charter the whole boat with our Thai chef on board to take care of all the galley work and help with general crew duties. 

Whichever you choose, you'll have a wonderful sailing holiday that you will never forget.
