Learn to sail on holiday in the Mediterranean.

Sailing is a great opportunity to get away from it all. It’s also a fantastic way to spend a holiday with family and friends, changing the scenery every day - or not, as you prefer.

Of course, to sail you must first learn how and this requires some tuition. The RYA offers a variety of courses to suit everyone from the beginner to the more experienced sailor. Most courses are run over 5 days and up to five students live and learn on board, guided and taught by one of our experienced skippers and qualified RYA sailing instructors.

With most sailing students attending courses so that they can charter a yacht somewhere nice in the Mediterranean, why not combine your course with a family holiday and learn on a yacht - in a nice place in the Mediterranean?

At Jolly Parrot we offer our clients the opportunity to sail out of our Mediterranean base in Gibraltar. A wide range of RYA tidal courses are taught against a moving backdrop of Western Mediterranean coastline. Gibraltar, Spain and North Africa are all within a day’s cruising, making your course a holiday as well as a learning experience. And the Mediterranean climate doesn’t hurt!
