There are many opportunities for Qualified and well trained RYA Yachtmaster and Yachtmaster Coastal Skippers. If you are on a Gap Year why not gain qualifications that will enable you to travel and work all over the world.

RYA Training

We deliver RYA and MCA Training courses to Internationally recognised standards that will enable you to work at Water Sports and RYA Training Centres anywhere. We have trained students from all over the world and helped them to meet their aspirations out on the water.

What Can I Expect

Depending on the courses that you choose you can expect to sail from two diverse locations. Barcelona and Gibraltar, follow our complete Fast Track training program and you can add Morocco and Portugal to your travels.

Why Train With Us?

We offer training to meet your personal aspirations and if you want to progress further you can stay and add additional modules. Our RYA Instructors are qualified to take you from basic training right through our program. In 7 weeks you can achieve RYA Coastal Skipper and if at the right level we will organise a RYA Yachtmaster Coastal assessment for you. 

Work In Our World

At the end of your course your Instructors will be able to recommend additional career opportunities should you want them, or you can return to University with the Internationally Recognised Qualifications that you have achieved in your time with us.
