Become a Yachtmaster
Getting qualified to skipper a sailing yacht is a brilliant way to use a sabbatical from work.
This experience may change your life!
After a few weeks of professional training in the UK or Australia you can expect to be qualified at a level where people start paying you to go sailing.
The classic career break option with Flying Fish is our 15 week Yachtmaster Pro Traineeship.
You get the best of both hemispheres by sailing in the challenging tides of the Solent and in the spectacular setting of Sydney Harbour.
For full details of this and all our skipper training courses go to our Yachtmaster training section.
Learning how to teach is fun and one of the best ways to develop your own personal skills.
Once you have the Yachtmaster certificate you are eligible for a short course to qualify as an RYA Cruising Instructor
If you want a sailing job during your career break, or you discover you would like a brand new career in the yachting industry, we provide an effective recruitment service.
