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.

Learn to sail

Begin with a Competent Crew course. Move on to Day Skipper and be ready to charter your own yacht.

Join our Yacht Skipper Fast-track course for an intensive programme to train from zero to Day Skipper.
