Sailing School

Learn to sail with the RMYC Sailing School

We are committed to deliver sailing tuition of a high standard to attract more people to our beautiful sport and pastime, no matter if you are a complete beginner or someone who has tried sailing earlier in life and would like to take it up again.

We offer dinghy sailing courses for all ages 7 and above from our base at the Royal Malta Yacht Club, Ta' Xbiex, situated beside the Black Pearl Restaurant.

What is Dinghy Sailing?

Dinghies are small open sailing boats which are great for day sailing, having fun and racing. They are a popular, affordable and exciting way of getting afloat. Nearly all of the sailing clubs and Training Centres will use sailing dinghies making them really accessible.

What equipment do you need?

You don't need to bring anything special with you just a change of clothes, a T-shirt, shorts and a pair of gym shoes you don't mind getting wet. We will provide you with lifejacket.

What can you do after you have learnt to sail?

There are so many opportunities to make being on the water a part of your life. You may like to join a club and enjoy the social life that comes with it, or take part in competitions, or even work towards a career in the watersports industry.
