Learning to sail is FUN, and it's FUN learning with Miramar Sailing School. Where better to learn than Antigua in the heart of the sunny Caribbean? There are few better holiday options than to acquire new knowledge, skills, and hopefully, "the passion", while cruising the stunning calm, warm, and blue waters that surround our beautiful island.
Join us in Antigua with the RYA Sail Cruising & Yachtmaster Scheme, you will not be disappointed. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
The RYA Sail Cruising & Yachtmaster Scheme offers Shore Based courses for every level from novice to global skipper. These courses provide the essential theory knowledge to be practiced at sea. Online Home Study courses are offered as an optional learning method.
Practice makes perfect! Becoming a competent boat handler requires a combination of theory knowledge, practice, and experience. At Miramar Sailing School we provide all three elements and teach you how to take to the sea in safety, and with confidence, in both sailing yachts and power boats.
Yachtmaster is for those aspiring to more than leisure sailing. At this point a sailing career becomes an achievable goal. Such are the levels of skill and responsibility associated with this grade, it is important that qualification is subject to independent examination.
Career opportunities in the Sailing Industry are many and varied. The RYA Sail Cruising & Yachtmaster Scheme provides entry level qualifications that can be commercially endorsed. Add to this an STCW course and you can start seeking employment with confidence.
Once bitten by the sailing bug, some students wish to progress their qualifications faster than others. As training continues, experience is always an essential component, however, we offer a range of course packages to speed up the process.
For some, formal training and qualifications are important, and these are available through our RYA Sail Cruising & Yachtmaster Scheme. For others, the fundamentals of sailing and safety are all they need to get out on the water and have some fun!
