Start Yachting: A Taster To Start Sailing
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 Start yachting course is an introduction to gaining sailing skills and manoeuvres which will give you a basic understanding of yacht handling under sail and relevant background knowledge to later move up the ladder to more advanced sailing skills which in due course can lead to either sailing your own yacht or maybe taking it up as a career. At Prosailing Malta we deliver courses commencing from Start Yachting to Yachtmaster.
Two days of sailing! The best way to acquire sailing skills in a safe and fun environment.
Our base is in Marsametto Harbour, Malta. Malta offers safe and warm sailing all the year round. Weather conditions are ideal for sailing.
No experience is required. You will spend two consecutive days (with the option of sleeping on board) on our training yacht with fellow students (ratio is 1-4 students) where you will learn to sail as a team and get the general feel of what it entails to sail with the wind. You will be given the chance to sail the boat and you will gain a general understanding of yacht handling under sail, rope work and safety.
The 2 days include RYA Instruction by a fully qualified RYA instructor, accommodation on board a 41 foot Beneteau Oceanis 411 clipper (fresh bedding provided) and fuel. When in home port mooring is also included. Meals are also provided whilst at sea or not in home port (breakfast, lunch and evening meal). On successfully completing the course RYA certificates will be issued.
