Yachtmaster Fastrack

This structured program will prepare you for the examination that will give you the most respected yachting qualification in the world. Our instructors will teach you from beginner’s basic level RYA Competent Crew, and bring you through the paces, some 2500 nautical miles later to the Yachtmaster Offshore Exam. Alternatively, should you have previous experience, miles or knowledge and join the scheme part of the way through, we will dovetail you into the program at your appropriate level. You will be made very welcome by our team, some of whom have lived and worked here in the Canaries for many years.
Stay on board one of our yachts in your own cabin.

During your time with us, you will learn to sail in the best sail training area the Canaries have to offer and learn to skipper a sailing yacht in many varied conditions, navigating your way around our 7 islands and visiting many of the marinas and harbours on offer.
