Learn to Sail


If you've never sailed before, you'll be amazed at how easy it all is. Instruction on the beach and then afloat from our experienced staff, is thorough and skilful, sympathetic and informal.

Most of our absolute beginners are sailing a singlehanded sailing boats in the safe, shallow waters by the end of the first afternoon. Your group's instructor will always be there to look after you. And Fornells Bay is reassurance itself: warm shallow water, locked in by gentle hills and wooded countryside. Even learning to deal with a capsize is fun!

Our aim is to help all beginners achieve their RYA Level 2 course whilst on holiday with Minorca Sailing, presenting them with their certificate at the end of the week.

The Gentle Option

If you are seeking relaxation from your sailing holiday, try our Gentle Option. Relax and let one of our fully qualified instructors do all the hard work while you enjoy leisurely sails around the bay. A gentle sail to one of Minorca's unspoilt beaches is the perfect way to unwind. Lie back, soak up the sun, and swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean.
