Established in 2012, we are a leading Royal Yachting Association recognised sea school in Malta running almost all the RYA courses up to Yachtmaster Ocean. This includes sailing and motor skipper, powerboat and jetski courses, for both recreational sailors and commercial skippers. We also run skipper refresher or continuation courses, plus own boat tuition from our base in Malta. The dinghy side is now a separate RYA school, run by Fairwind Sailing based in Portomaso Marina.
Also available are the full range of shore based theory and specialist RYA courses, needed in many cases to complete the criteria for certificates of competence.
As well as the RYA courses, we also run the local Maltese courses approved by Transport Malta. You can book your Malta Nautical Licence course in English or Maltese. This is a mandatory requirement for any Maltese National, and those with residency permits.
Our boats are based in and around the Grand Harbour, a magnificent and historical area that for centuries dominated the whole Mediterranean. Enjoying warm weather all year round and with plenty of places to sail to, including Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Spain, Morocco, Tunisia, Portugal. You don't need to sail in the cold and wet. Malta is an island with a rich history, culture, and good connections to many of Europe’s air hubs.
At Sailing School Malta, all of our instructors are highly qualified with a wealth of local knowledge to navigate and teach practical courses around the Maltese islands. We are passionate about crew training and we’d love to teach you whether you’re a beginner – embarking on your new adventure – or an experienced professional looking to top-up your skills; you can be assured we have the correct course to meet your needs.
We would like to extend our all-year-round warm welcome to you. Together, we will not only hone your new skills but also provide an unforgettable experience of pleasure and enjoyment for you!
