Sunsail sailing schools offer you the chance to get the skills and experience needed to sail anywhere in the world.

Develop and hone your sailing skills at one of our worldwide bases, whether close to home in our Port Solent base, in the gentle sailing waters of the Mediterranean, or in the sensational British Virgin Islands, a sailor's paradise. All our staff are RYA qualified and offer a fun, professional approach to sail instruction.

Earn your International Certificate of Competence (ICC), RYA Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper, Competent Crew, Yachtmaster Offshore and many more qualifications, with a range of practical and theory-based courses to choose from, depending on experience.

Sailing schools

We have sailing schools across the world. Take your pick a huge range of courses at our flagship school in Portsmouth, which will take you all the way from Start Yachting to Yachtmaster. Alternatively, you can head overseas to combine a holiday in the sun with the next step on your sailing adventure.

Please note that only our Portsmouth school offers tidal qualifications. All qualifications from our overseas schools, unless noted otherwise, are non-tidal.
