RYA Sailing Courses in The Meditarranean.

We are very used to mixed ability teaching so please do not worry too much about picking the right sailing course in advance. We always assess where you are up to on the first day and take you as far forward as possible, without pressure. Beginners can start with a 5 day RYA Competent Crew or a 2 day RYA Start Yachting course.

Those who already know how to sail and have completed their Day Skipper Theory Course may be ready for the RYA Day Skipper Practical.

Change to the Day Skipper Practical in 2017
Since 2017, the RYA have been issuing a single RYA Day Skipper Practical certificate with no distinction between Tidal and Non-Tidal Practical courses.

This brings the RYA in line with other international sailing schemes who do not differentiate between the certificates obtained when you learn to sail in different areas of the world.

You can do your Day Skipper Practical course in Menorca but you must complete your Day Skipper Theory course in advance as you will need to demonstrate your understanding of tidal navigation.

We run regular courses in Menorca each week from May to October. This is the main season in Menorca when the weather is hot and sunny, the restaurants and resorts are all open and the sea is warm for swimming and snorkelling. You can sail in Mahón Harbour and then set out to explore the wonderful coves and harbours around the island.

Powerboat Level 1 & 2 / ICC Courses – More Info »
Menorca Cruising can now offer powerboat Level 1 & 2 courses in Mahon, for those wishing to learn how to use a small powerboat safely and for those wishing to charter a small boat in Menorca or other Mediterranean countries where a qualification is needed.
