Iternational Yacht Training (IYT) Training Program
We follow the International Yacht Training (www.iytworld.com) sail training programs in Spain. These are internationally recognised and go from courses for absolute beginners to professional superyacht qualifications. The courses are modular which provides great flexibility allowing you to maybe just participate in some introductory elements whilst enjoying the sailing or treating your stay on board as an intensive training course. We are also able to take account of previous experience and fast track the elements you are familiar with. When you enrol in any program you will be given a personal log which stays with you allowing you to continue training at any time and in any school worldwide.

More experienced participants can achieve this within a week and existing experience can be assessed and taken into account.
