RYA Sailing courses and charters in Gibraltar and Spain with Rock Sailing

Join ROCK Sailing in Gibraltar for an RYA sailing course in the Mediterranean sunshine.

We offer a full range of RYA practical sailing courses from our base in Gibraltar, giving you the opportunity to sail in warm, tidal waters whilst cruising the stunning Spanish and Moroccan coasts. Great local culture combined with expert tuition makes this an ideal sailing location for beginners to experienced yachtsmen alike.

All of our sailing courses, from Competent Crew or Day Skipper right up to Fast Track Yachtmaster are taught on modern yachts which are fully equipped with the latest safety and navigation equipment. Our experienced instructors will ensure that your sailing is safe, challenging and rewarding.

With 300 days of sunshine a year and some famous winds coming off the Rock, you will find Gibraltar difficult to beat. North Africa is a short sail across the Straits and Spain and Portugal just around the corner. Whether you are looking for professional training or sailing adventures, we can arrange it for you.

Spring 2016 News from ROCK Sailing

We are starting the year with warm sunshine and blue skies and a great offer for February courses. We know how miserable the UK is in February so come sailing with us for a Competent Crew or Day Skipper course with a start date up to 21st February and ask for our early spring offer of £399. Come February 28th we are in full swing.

Our first Yachtmaster Offshore or Yachtmaster Coastal course with exam begins 28th February with one place still available.

VHF DSC course 28th February.

For those of you looking for a change of career in 2016, our first Fast Track courses will begin on 31st January and 28th February. This will qualify you in time to start work with our colleagues at Neilson Sailing, Nautilus Yachting or Med Sailors as Flotilla Skippers for the summer season in the Med.

Our Fastrack students from last year have gone on to find great jobs. Congratulations to Mareike and Lars who have secured a position with Nautilus Yachting in Athens and Connor who will be working on a Tall Ship. The lovely Aurelie will, no doubt, go on to achieve greatness but we will have to wait to see what they are. Wishing her the best of luck. Some of our Day Skippers have even found positions. The name Rock Sailing can open doors in the yachting industry so we hope you join us in 2016.

Quote of the month

"Hi Carrie, I’m happy to tell you that I have a new job! Lars and I will start as Flotilla staff at Nautilius as you probably already heard from John. We are starting end of April at the Athens Flotilla. Lars will be my host.

Thank you again for your support and your recommendations.

Greetings to Peter and the whole team!"
