We are a fully recognised RYA training centre. At Prosailing Malta our mission is to deliver sailing excellence from the novice to the more experienced sailor.

The RYA competent crew course is your professional introduction to sailing on a cruising yacht.

Five days sailing! The best way to acquire sailing skills in a safe and fun environment.

No previous experience required! You will be trained to be a useful crew member on any cruising yacht.

You will work as part of a team and sail the yacht from day one. You will take an active role in the sailing of the yacht including basic navigational skills, helming, trimming sails, tying knots and working with the skipper to sail safely. The course is designed for beginners to progress quickly; our instructors are patient and friendly and are there to help you.

Our base is in Marsametto Harbour, Malta. Malta offers safe and warm sailing all the year round. Weather conditions are ideal for sailing.
