Sailing or Windsurfing Fast Track Instructor Course


Our fast-track Dinghy and Windsurf Instructor courses are designed for ambitious, energetic and enthusiastic people of all ages and all abilities who want the best introduction to the industry. The only prerequisites to joining one of our Professional Instructor Training Courses are a moderate swimming ability and a passion to learn new skills, although we also offer 4 and 2 week options for those with previous sailing or windsurfing experience.

Our Instructor Training Courses teach you all the skills needed to become a confident and professional instructor in Sailing or Windsurfing and all include an element of work experience in an active RYA Training Centre to gain the skills that only working can give. The course will teach all the required skills to be an RYA Instructor including Learning to  Sail in a large variety of boats, Powerboat Driving, First Aid and all the background knowledge needed for one of the best jobs in the world.

The warm waters and consistent winds in our Academy Base on the Greek Island of Lefkas mean that we can maximise time on the water and our instructors will always aim to pass on their love of Sailing and Windsurfing at all times. Nikiana Beach Club is a busy RYA Training Centre with a varied fleet of 30 Sailing Dinghies, a great range of Windsurf Sails and Boards and a Club Yacht for instruction in some of the more theory based parts of the course.

By providing plenty of time on the water and encompassing both work experience and ongoing RYA Centre Experience we provide you with the skills you need to thrive in an RYA Training Centre. We provide guaranteed roles in our Beach Clubs for the remainder of the season for candidates who shine on the course (a role the following season for late season courses). For all other candidates we make use of our extensive industry contacts to help secure roles both in the UK and Overseas. Having completed the course with Seafarer Academy you’ll already have the knowledge and experience of a busy Centre, something other courses can’t offer.

However you choose to utilise your newly gained instructor qualification we are here to help make it happen. We recognise that gaining your qualification is just the first part of the adventure, so we will always remain on hand to help you enjoy the rest of it!
