Awesome Yachtmaster Offshore Training!
Apr 2021 • Solo
I took part in the Yachtmaster Offshore Training from Atlantic Sailing in May 2021 and was absolutely thrilled.

Fadwa had advised me very well, was very friendly and was always available for questions.

Richard was one of the best skipper trainers I have ever had. We trained harbor maneuvers in confined space and up to 32kn wind. He let us practice all maneuvers ourselves while sitting super relaxed next to us. Not every instructor manages to hand over so much responsibility! The training was clearly harder than the exam at the end, but that was the goal of the training :-)

We trained on „Yalla“, a First 40.7, which is an awesome and very fast boat. The boat was also very well maintenanced. It was a lot of fun!

So I can fully recommend Atlantic Sailing and I am looking forward to see you all again :-)

Left AS a confident skipper with a group of new friends and skills
Apr 2021
My girlfriend and I were aiming to get our day skipper licenses. After much research on different locations and schools we booked a two week combined competent crew and day skipper course with Atlantic Sailing and it was easily the best choice we could have made. Fadwa, Richard and Christos were all incredibly knowledgeable, kind and generous with their time. After even two short weeks I would happily consider them friends as well as the two groups of sailing hopefuls we lived with. It's hard to be enthusiastic enough about how great our experience was.

The course over the two weeks was well paced for beginners and skillfully managed by Richard and Christos to leaving us feeling confident enough after the relatively short time to want to set out on our own. The lovely 39 foot Bavaria Olive Oyl that hosted us for the time was well kept and thoroughly stocked with food by the effusive Fadwa. She was happy to cater to us as vegetarians for the first week and for the second week provide lots of Vegan fare to cater to another one of the crew members. Like all yachts the boat was cosy but even with four of us on the course for the week felt spacious enough. It was the perfect venue for a quiet drink after a day of sailing. Combined with the marina facilities it may even have given us an unreasonably luxurious view of sailing!

I would recommend AS to anyone looking to learn sailing or improve their skills. They have the understanding and breadth to coach anything from the most basic knots to fine sail trimming all why being excellent company in an amazing location.

refreshing, invigorating and holistic experience of the sea!
Apr 2021
From first contact to goodbye, Fadwa and Richard were hospitable, helpful and very professional. I spent two weeks on the boat, going from 0 experience (through competent crew) to day skipper and felt cared for throughout.
On the first week Richard was our instrctor - sharp and full of anecdotes from a lifetime at sea - it gave me a strong base and confidence to move on to my day skipper week where I was lucky to have the lovely and very skilled Christos as my instrctor.
I would definitely recommend Atlantic Sailing for anyone who is interested in a refreshing, invigorating and holistic experience of the sea.
Will miss you guys, thank you for everything!

Highly recommended!
Mar 2021
I was looking for an RYA Training Center in the Canary Islands where I could do my Yachtmaster prep week and exam. After writing emails to probably every RYA sailing school in the Canaries, I appreciated that Atlantic Sailing was handling my queries really professional from the first second onwards. They were the only ones who sent me a questionnaire to figure out how much time I need to successfully prepare for the Yachtmaster exam. And it turned out that their estimate was spot on. They do know their stuff, especially how to build and polish up your sailing skills towards an exam. I’ve done a lot of RYA courses in the recent years and I’ve rarely seen such dedicated people like Fadwa and Richard from Atlantic Sailing. They really care about their students and customers. And last but not least they are just pleasant people with whom I enjoyed spending time and setting sails off Lanzarote. Long story short, I passed my Yachtmaster Offshore Exam very well and I really recommend Atlantic Sailing to every one who wants to do their Yachtmaster certificate. I wish Atlantic Sailing always fair winds and hopefully I see you again soon!

great school. lovely people.
Feb 2021
while i was looking for options to improve my sailing skills during the winter months, i came across atlantic sailing and immediately knew that i want to go to lanzarote and train with them.
fadwa was very helpful and kind upfront as well as during my weeks on the island. She always tried to make my stay as perfect as she could.

my first week was with chris, an amazingly competent teacher who knew exactly how to break things down to the essence. brilliant.
In my second week, richard was our coach and it was just awesome to be able to benefit from his vast experience.

the package they offer is really unbeatable: on top of the great teaching you get a private cabin and all the food you want - yes, fadwa takes good care of that as well :)

be prepared that you might go there just for sailing and end up meeting new friends on top.

I have made 7 weeks training with Richard, from Day Skipper to Yachtmaster , Offshore, it was just an amazing adventure. Both Fadwa and Richard took my hand and brought me to this amazing result, with the mission of being a good sailor, not just copy paste to pass the exam!
Extremely raccomanded, trust them, they know what are they doing, honest, professionals and capable!

Best sailing school!
Dec 2020
Thank you Fadwa and Richard for the great time we had with you. We really appreciated the friendly and helpful communication upfront. The training weeks were very practical and structured, so we could gain maximum input from our time on board as well as having fun sailing. The quality of the training was well above standard and by far the best sailing school we have seen so far! Everything else was taken care of - good and healthy food on board, beds were made and the boat was very clean. All in all we would recommend AS in all aspects! Not to mention the easy logistics with the nearby airport and the brand new marina.

RYA Day Skipper Course
Nov 2020
Just back from doing the RYA Day Skipper course with Atlantic Sailing. What a well run school from start to finish. Fadwa made the booking so easy in this Covid times, with a great welcome when I arrived at the boat a few hours early. Our head instructor was Chris and in all my years doing courses and training (not just sailing) Chris is the best I’ve ever come across. He started at the basics and went from there to way beyond our syllabus. He covered all aspects of sailing and thought me everything I wanted to learn about chartering a yacht for a flotilla or bareboat. Thanks to all in Atlantic Sailing and looking forward to joining you again shortly

Best RYA school in Canary Islands
Feb 2020
I've booked a mile building with Atlantic Sailing in 2016 and after two weeks sailing with Fadwa and Richard towards the Azores Islands I had no doubt they were the right school to guide me through the RYA Yachtmaster slow track program.

Outside Arrecife marina, the newest marina in Canary Islands, you can find the best training ground to improve your sailing skill whether you a beginner or a expert sailor, Richard will have the right challenge for you.

Big thanks to the Atlantic Sailing team for the help and support!!

Solid 5/5
