Sailing Courses

Sail in Turkey has always offered Bespoke Own Boat Sail Training Courses.  These are designed for those that would prefer to learn to sail on a one to one basis with a qualified Skipper.  You will be  on board a yacht which suits your needs with regards to size, accommodation, duration along with the right amount of practical and theory tuition you require.





With Sail in Turkey you have the flexibility to determine your exact needs. Let us know what your expectations and requirements are and we will put a package together accordingly. For example you may wish to have an exclusive Sail Training package where it is just you sailing the yacht with a Skipper who will give you 100% of his time during your charter.  Perhaps one or two of your friends or family will join you. 


Course Options

We are offering sail training courses through a professional RYA Sailing School. The RYA Instructor is English and the courses are onboard a 3 cabin Sun Odyssey 45. This training will be specific and by group rather than on a one to one basis.  We can offer practical courses on a private or ‘book a cabin’ basis depending on whether or not you wish to share the yacht and instructor with others:

Courses start Saturday, boarding at 17:00 returning to the marina around midday on Friday. Students may stay on board until Saturday morning disembarking by 08:00. 


‘Book your Cabin’ or Private Practical Courses

For individuals or groups sharing the instructor & yacht – min 2 students.  This is a great way to achieve your training objectives whilst having fun & meeting interesting like-minded people.  We often mix courses so you may be completing your Competent Crew Course whilst another student is studying day skipper course.  

Alternatively you may choose to charter the exclusive use of the yacht for you and your party. Our private course option suits people with specific dates in mind who prefer a more personalised experience.  We are happy to help your group choose an itinerary to suit you.

For both options we offer the range of RYA courses to suit the experience of the members of the group.  The course will focus on individual objectives and skills.

Email us  with your preferred dates & details of the sailing experience you and your group have.

Competent Crew 

RYA Competent Crew is the essential starting point for your RYA training. The course introduces the absolute beginner to sailing a cruising yacht. It is also an ideal stepping stone for dinghy sailors to try yachting and for those who have already done some crewing but wish to learn the right way. At the end of the course you will have become, as the name suggests, a competent (and confident) member of the crew. The course is designed to provide as much fun and enjoyment as possible in a safe environment.

Day Skipper

Skippering a yacht for the first time can be a daunting yet exhilarating experience. The RYA Day Skipper practical course is designed to teach you to “Take Charge” safely and confidently. A skipper does much more than navigate. They are responsible for the complete safety and wellbeing of the yacht and crew. These responsibilities include weather forecasting, victualling, engine maintenance, sail selection and handling, passage planning, watch keeping, navigation and pilotage.

Coastal Skipper

This course is an ideal bridge between the Day Skipper course and the RYA Yachtmaster preparation and exam. The course is designed to give an experienced RYA Day Skipper the confidence to undertake longer and more complex passages which will involve sailing at night or involve watch keeping systems.
