RYA Training - Join Now !

header training

Bookings for our RYA courses in 2020 are now open!

We offer the complete range of RYA recognized courses both for sailing and powerboating in Portugal. Lisbon, besides being a great city to visit, is also a great location for training. With strong tides, traffic, challenging pilotage scenarios, river and offshore sailing you will find it all here.

You will also find cheap flights from the major locations around the world and easy acess from the airport to the marina.

Our sailing courses run in top quality sailing boats, a Dufour 382  from 2018 and a Bavaria 32 cruiser from 2010. Our poweboat courses run in a Ribcraft 6,4 pro with a 175hp Suzuki. You will find a dedicated team of 4 resident RYA certified instructors ready to help and share their knowledge.

We also offer the required theory courses, both in class and online. This includes RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship, RYA Day Skipper Shorebased and RYA CS/Yachtmaster Shorebased as well as the shorbased specialist courses (RYA VHF SRC, RYA First Aid and RYA Radar).
