Around the world  the cruising boat training program developed by the ‘Royal Yachting Association’ is accepted as the benchmark for Sail Training.  Yacht Training Victoria, based at Melbourne’s historic port of Williamstown, is a fully accredited  RYA training centre, and offers a full range of  on-water sailing, or shorebased theory course to suit  you.

It could be our Start Sailing, Competent Crew, Day Skipper, or perhaps a special “ladies only” practical sail training session, up to the pinnacle of sailing qualifications – RYA Yachtmaster Offshore  Which- ever, we can assure you that you will receive both professional tuition, and we will go out of our way to make it a special and memorable experience.

We also now offer RYA approved online theory courses for “Day Skipper” and “Yachtmaster”; a great way to get that refresher on the theory prior to taking a practical sailing course.

Maybe you are planning a sail charter holiday? We will teach you the skills to make your holiday enjoyable and safe. If  you’re heading overseas, we can prepare you with an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).
