Dinghy instructor training
Start a career or a gap year teaching dinghy sailing.
Flying Fish Royal Yachting Association (RYA) dinghy instructor courses are available in Vassiliki, Greece, and Sydney, Australia.
Maximum time on the water
Our instructor courses maximise the time you spend on the water to improve your personal sailing.
We know that the more confidence you have on the water, the better you will be as a teacher.
The best instructors
We also know that you don't need to be an Olympic hotshot to be a good instructor.
Many of the best instructors are sailors who have recent memories of their own first lessons.
Start as a beginner sailor
As a beginner or early intermediate sailor you can reach instructor level in just six weeks.
To make the most of the work opportunities you should consider combining both Dinghy and Windsurfing Instructor qualifications
Instructor training for experienced sailors
We also run shorter courses to fast track experienced sailors
Professional Instructor Development
After qualifying as instructor most candidates will benefit from some structured work experience - plus further training to improve your personal sailing skills.
