If you've never sailed before and you're on a stay and sail holiday, you'll find the ‘introduction to yachting' course super useful, and of course, pretty much essential!
The 'introduction to yachting' course is available from Retreat and Vounaki Beachclub, which are both in Greece. You'll be amazed at how quickly and easily you'll pick it up. Heaps of fun and packed full of information, the four-day course will teach you everything you need to know to get you safely from day one to day seven of your flotilla, taking to the helm as captain of your own ship.
The training is hands on, so you'll be out sailing everyday, and your instructor knows to make time for the odd picnic, refreshing sea swims and taverna lunches. By the end of the week you'll be checking out of your room and running down the jetty, eager to get your yacht out to sea and put into practice all that you have learnt!
