Established in 2008 by Mark & Jane Sanders, sailors themselves, the Learn2Sail team have quickly built a reputation for safe, superior quality, sailing training suited to everyone's sailing ability, and set in the beautiful waters of the Portuguese Algarve.
We offer the widest range of sail training courses to truly develop your sailing experience and accommodate everyone’s sailing adventure. Learn2Sail has courses for those seeking competent crew basic sailing or Day Skipper courses, right through to gaining the Yachtmaster professional qualification. All Learn2Sail courses have RYA sailing accreditation and certification.
Both our theory and practical courses are available throughout the year and group sizes are kept small to allow individual attention and support.
Our Sailing School is based in Portimao, Portugal which we chose for its fantastic ‘California’ type weather, rugged coastline, fascinating culture and wonderful food.
We are just 30 minutes away from Faro international airport and we can collect you from the airport as part of the overall sailing course package. Flights to and from Faro are served by the budget airlines, Ryanair, Easyjet and Monarch. If you book early the flights can be very reasonable making the Algarve a very viable sailing holiday/ sail training spot.
