ATHENS SAILING ACADEMY GREECE

Featured courses

The Athens sailing Academy is an English sailing school Greece teaching sailing in the Greek Islands, and offering sailing school holidays. The Athens sailing Academy Greece was founded in 2005 and we have been a sailing school in Greece since. We teach in the Saronic Gulf/Cyclades Islands because both offer excellent sailing conditions. The weather can vary from a placid force 3, more importantly to a much more exciting force 6. Sea and wave conditions are placid and not often rough. It’s always sunny and the water temperature in the mid-summer is very warm. All this makes the need for fleeces and wet weather gear redundant. The islands and ports that we visit are typically Greek and un-spoilt, where you will meet many interesting characters. You will find many deserted coves and bays where few yachts go.

The Athens Sailing School offers novice and experienced sailors, the opportunity to advance their sailing skills. Our unique courses are all one week trips, that can be Private or Group style. Once you pass your course it will certify you for an Internationally accepted skippers license also with this license you can charter your own ‘Bareboat yacht‘ from any of the major yacht charter companies. The ASA license is internationally recognized all over the World. From the USA to Europe also Asia as well as Australia. 

For the more advanced sailors who want to experience long sailing trips and learn more sailing skills, such as watch keeping and night sailing, we offer our 10 day mile building trips . These cruises are designed for the more adventurous in mind. 

PRIVATE TUITION.

The Athens sailing school Greece offers “PRIVATE TUITION” with one of our qualified instructors. A couple can take “PRIVATE” courses for a week. This gives you a more personnel teaching environment and the opportunity to progress at your own speed.  Families can also enjoy private sailing classes, bring your children young and teens and enjoy sailing together while qualifying for your Skippers License. Sailors who have passed their Skippers license can also progress through the higher ASA classes because the sailing school offers ASA 105 and ASA 106 to Coastal Skipper level.
