SailQuest students attend the SailQuest 5/10 Day IYT Crew/Skipper’s course and gain the skills, confidence and qualifications they need to handle a yacht on their own. Over 1,500+ amazing people, some with previous experience and many absolute beginners, have completed our IYT “Learn to Sail” certificate program who are now actively participating in yacht chartering, cruising, racing, ownership and achieving their sailing goals in locations world-wide.
We hope you can get involved! Book your course dates today and learn, share and live the sailing lifestyle with the growing community of SailQuest sailors. Our well-organized, in-depth Day-by-Day Program and our well-qualified and dedicated instructors are the key to our success. You will definitely learn a LOT in this class and have a great time along the way.
During this fast-paced program, we cover a vast amount of sailing information, skills and technique. We will sail over 200+ nautical miles through our amazing Gulf of Thailand cruising area aboard our training yachts. From the SailQuest base at Ocean Marina, Pattaya, Thailand, we will be cruising to remote tropical islands & busy shipping ports. We will cover sailing & sail handling, yacht safety, docking & anchoring, onboard mechanical, electric & plumbing systems, the “Rules of the Road”, coastal navigation & passage planning and much, much more.
SailQuest students get a chance to sail aboard 3 different yachts during each 10 day course: our live-aboard charter yacht Paprika - Jeanneau 43DS, our cruising catamaran Thida Samut - Prout 39 and our sporty and exciting X-99 - Hi Jinks. Getting some experience on these 3 different types of sailing yacht is a very effective way to “learn the ropes”!
Upon completion of the full 10 day course, students receive the IYT Bareboat Skippers Certificate. You will also have the option to apply for the International Certificate of Competency (ICC – now required in all EU countries to sail/charter yachts) and several other international yachting certificates. These yachting certificates are recognized by charter & insurance companies and many governments around the world.
