Sail Training

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.

New for 2018 we are happy to announce that we are now working with Colin Jaquiss, RYA School Principle and Chief Instructor.  Colin grew up sailing dinghies with his family in North Wales.  After a successful career in training & development Colin has been a professional yachtsman since 2006.  He became an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor in 2008 and has over 10 years of experience of teaching RYA courses to students of all nationalities, abilities and levels.


Course Options

We are also offering sail training courses where the charter is sold by the berth.    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 public basis depending on whether or not you wish to share the yacht and instructor with others:

Public Practical Courses

For individuals or groups sharing the instructor & yacht – max 5 students.  This is a great way to achieve your training objectives whilst having fun & meeting interesting like-minded people.  You will receive expert tuition from Colin. 

We often mix courses so you may be completing your Competent Crew Course whilst another student is studying day skipper course.  

If you are an individual or couple please contact us with your preferred date range. We will then let you know what is available.

Prices from £650 per person.

Check Availability for Public Course

Private Practical Courses

Exclusive use of the yacht for you and your party – max 5 students.  Our private course option suits people with specific dates in mind and who prefer a more personalised experience.  You will receive the same expert tuition as on a public course.

We can offer the range of RYA courses to suit the experience of the members of your group.  The course will focus on individual objectives and skills.  Courses can be 5 or 7 days in duration and we are happy to help your group choose an itinerary to suit you.
