Teach sailing and live life outdoors!

Dinghy sailing is an extreme sport for many, though for some the attraction lies with a peaceful Sunday afternoon cruise. Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or a relaxation addict, Flying Fish guarantees to improve your sailing in the best training locations in the world.

Dinghy Instructor Greece

Flying Fish offer courses for all stages of learning: the complete beginner, somebody with experience or if you are just looking to complete a Dinghy Instructors course, we have a programme for you!

Location, location, location

During the Northern Hemisphere summer (May to October) Flying Fish are based in Vassiliki, Greece – arguably Europe’s top all round Water Sports location. With warm water, relaxed lifestyle, amazing conditions, incredible mountain biking and legendary nightlife it is no wonder it is so popular!  For more information on what’s provided and what we recommend you bring click here.

During the winter months (October to April) Flying Fish moves to Sydney, Australia where the warm trade winds make Sydney a superb place to learn to sail. You will find sailing on Sydney Harbour incredible. This and the friendly, laid-back environment makes a perfect setting for Instructor training. The beaches are world famous and, since there is so much to see and do, it’s no wonder millions flock each year to experience life down under
