– Learn to Sail in Greece
If you are looking to take an RYA training course, the sheltered waters of the Ionian offer a perfect location, as the inland sea is protected by the islands of Lefkas and Kefallonia.
Our School, Seafarer Training, is located in the protected harbour Sivota, on the south side of the island, ideally situated to head either south to the islands of Kefallonia, Ithaca and beyond or north towards Paxos and Corfu. If you are taking either the Competent Crew or Day Skipper course, our tuition yachts generally head south, with protected waters and plenty of harbours and bays for mooring and pilotage. If you are looking to go beyond Day Skipper, either Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster Prep, then the waters to the north of Lefkas offer open seas, longer passages and busier waters around Corfu.
If you are looking to charter a yacht, either as part of a flotilla or on a bareboat basis, then the non-tidal RYA Day Skipper practical course is the right choice. This will give you all the practical skills to charter in the coastal areas of the Mediterranean. The RYA Day Skipper certificate also enables you to obtain the internationally recognised International Certificate of Competence (ICC).
Reliable sunshine in the Ionian is virtually guaranteed during the season between early May and late October, with temperatures ranging from the low 70's in early and late season up to the high 80's or even low 90's in late June through August. Sailing conditions are generally moderate with winds typically force 2-4. More challenging sailing is available further south.
