Learn to sail or improve your skills on a Flying Fish yacht course
Flying Fish runs RYA practical courses on fast, comfortable 40 foot yachts in Cowes and Sydney.
Cowes, yachting capital
Cowes is the yachting capital of England.
From here you learn to sail in the Solent, the broad stretch of tidal water that lies between the Isle of Wight and England's mainland.
We arrange mile-building passages to Ireland, France, the Channel Islands, Ireland and England's West Country.
Sydney Harbour, centre of yachting in Australia
In Australia the Flying Fish Sail Academy is based in the spectacular setting of Sydney's Middle Harbour Yacht Club.
You learn to sail in Sydney Harbour and explore the coast of New South Wales.
From Sydney our ocean passages extend as far as Lord Howe Island and Tasmania.
