Introduction to Yachting

Race yacht papagayo


 Do you want to try sailing but do not have too much time to spare or do not wish to take time out of your holiday? Then the two day Introduction to Yachting could be something that would interest you. Spend a fun filled day with First 4 Sail, going through some of the theory of sailing and then getting out on the water to put into practice what you have learnt.


If you find that after your day of sailing you have caught the sailing bug, then this course can be accredited to the IYT International Crew course.

Our small group (maximum 6) guarantees that everyone on board can try their hand at the different aspects of sailing. Heading out into beautiful Rodney Bay on our 40ft race yacht, Papagayo, we will hoist the mainsail and fly Nautical terminology the jib as each ‘crew member’ takes on a job.


The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment whilst having the added bonus of learning something new.


You do not need any prior experience, but if you have been sailing before we will be sure to teach you something new.
