Our fast-track Dinghy Instructor course is designed for ambitious, energetic and enthusiastic people of all ages and all abilities who want the best introduction to the industry. The only prerequisites to joining are a moderate swimming ability and a passion to learn new skills, although we also offer 4 and 2 week options for those with previous sailing experience.
The course is based on the Greek Island of Lefkas and kicks off with a couple of weeks learning to sail before doing the Powerboat Level 2 Course and the Assistant Instructor Course in Week 3. Week 4 is spent doing work experience in a busy RYA Centre followed by a week training for the Dinghy Instructor Pre Entry Assessment. The final week is the RYA Instructor Course itself. During this program there will be time to try new sports such as Windsurfing, Paddle boarding and Yacht Sailing and there will be some great socials such as sailing to an island for a BBQ.
Following the course there are great employment options.
