What you'll do

This is a two-day experience hosted by Sailing Scool Malta. You will learn sailing as a novice, get trained to be a crew member, and obtain the world-recognized RYA Start Yachting qualification by the end of the course. At the same time, you will explore and view the most beautiful places in Malta from a boat.

The Introduction to Sail Cruising course is the best way to become active crew members rather than just passengers, with no experience needed, just enthusiasm to get into the world of sailing!

You can experience living onboard day and night and really get to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands-on. You are the crew - without you, the sails won't go up.

By the end of the course, you will have experienced steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework, and be aware of safety on board.

From our base in Manoel Island, you will have had a fantastic holiday and will have visited some great marinas and bays along the way. We may visit Comino Island and Blue Lagoon if the weather condition allows.

You will also meet active people like you and may become friends at the end of the training.

The course usually runs every week on Monday and Tuesday or on Saturday and Sunday (between 09.30hrs and 17.00hrs).

The yacht you will be sailing is called “Look far”, a Bavaria 44 four-cabin version, well maintained and comfortable. It is moored in Manoel Island Marina Ponton D

Really a wonderful experience! Matt taught me many things in just two days! I had never been on a yacht and I’ve never done sailing before, and I loved that! If you have enough time and money don’t hesitate to do the course!
