Our Gap Year Courses
Gap Year Sailing, Windsurfing & Skiing
Every Flying Fish Course has its share of students who are taking a Gap Year.
Having a gap year will offer so many benefits, from meeting new people, improving your CV to helping you settle in better at University. You’ll gain some excellent life skills and have a greater understanding about how the world works.
Most school leavers in Britain now consider a Gap Year to be an essential part of growing up. Many want to travel, with Australia a favourite destination. Have a gap year of a lifetime in Australia and come back as a professional water sports instructor!
Take a Sailing Gap Year
Whichever option you choose, taking a course and learning how to sail on your gap year will give you the chance to travel the world, become RYA qualified and find work in many wonderful places.
Our Yachtmaster Courses take place in Sydney, Australia. Initially you will learn the basics of sailing in a small dinghy before setting sail on larger boats and yachts. On the larger yachts you will sail ocean passages, the most amazing is from Tasmania to Sydney.
If big yachts are not your thing, then becoming a sailing instructor is the route for you! Teaching sailing is a brilliant job to do during your University summers, you pretty much have a guaranteed job and will spend 4 months in the sun in any number of stunning destinations around Europe. Our most popular Dinghy Sailing Instructor Courses take place in Vassiliki, Greece.
