Ahoy Shipmates:
And stand by to cast off! The SailQuest Sailing School program has set sail and we welcome you aboard. At SailQuest we are always focused on our goal – teaching YOU to sail and preparing students to get the most from the yachting experience. We realize the art and science of sailing/yachting covers a wide field of knowledge and getting the pertinent information across to new sailors in order to build a solid foundation of yachting basics is our primary concern and challenge.

That is why we are really excited about the SailQuest “Learn to Sail” certificate program. As a SailQuest student you can “start now” by completing our online courses and preparing to attend the super effective (and super funJ) SailQuest IYT Hands-On sailing course where you will build essential sailing skills and gain a solid, practical understanding of what is really involved in taking responsibility for a yacht, whether out for a day sail, a family charter holiday, or realizing your goals of live-aboard cruising as the owner of your own yacht.

Our online courses allow you to begin or advance your nautical knowledge and certificate levels at your own pace and in your own place. Study at home (never at workJ) and take advantage of the comprehensive NauticED sailing software. These excellent inter-active courses offer an in-depth program to get you started in what can often become a lifetime study of boats and the sea. Check out NED, the online sailing yacht simulator, perfect for learning about the crucial points of sail, and open your personal online Sailor’s Logbook.

SailQuest recommends that students start off with the NauticED Skipper course. Sailors who already have their IYT Bareboat Skipper certificate or equivalent should consider NauticED Charter Master or Captain level online courses. These courses are guaranteed to sharpen your sailing skills and raise your level of sailing knowledge.

With our online courses, you have the opportunity to get involved with sailing immediately and will be well prepared for the “Hands – On” courses we offer at SailQuest Sailing School.

The SailQuest 10 Day Hands-On Sailing course is where it really comes together for sailors who are ready to “learn the ropes”. This is your chance to put the sailing theory you learned online to use and to learn a whole lot more. After years of development and refinement, The Sailquest Hands-On course covers all the basics without becoming too “heavy”. We will teach you what  you need to know in order to stay out of trouble when you are on the water, planning a passage or considering yacht ownership.

The  SailQuest  Hands-On day by day program includes valuable classroom based navigational lessons; 2 days of marina based lessons to cover yacht systems & equipment, close quarter maneuvering, docking, dingy drills, and more; and, of course, LOTS of sailing.

Students typically log over 300nm during our 10 day course and will experience a variety of conditions and sailing locations throughout our Gulf of Thailand training area, from uninhabited tropical island anchorages to busy shipping lanes and bustling ports. Students can complete the 10 day course at one time or split into 5 day sections as they fit into your schedule and lifestyle.

Students who complete the SailQuest Hands-On sailing course and pass evaluation and exams are awarded the internationally recognized IYT Bareboat Skipper certificate and are qualified to charter a yacht from yacht charter companies worldwide.
About SailQuest Sailing School

Captain Tim McMahon;”Learning to sail responsibly covers a broad range of information and topics. Students retain this nautical knowledge at different levels; you may study the course material, but you can’t really ‘learn’ it all at once and that’s why you need to get the on-the -water experience.

At SailQuest, we take a personal interest in every student and make a big effort not only to teach them how to sail, but also how to use that knowledge to advance their sailing goals, whether that may be yacht chartering, crewing on a world cruising yacht or being able to make informed decisions when it comes to yacht ownership.

Uninformed or poorly trained people who get out on the water or get involved with a boat and have a bad experience, tend to stay away from the sea, and that is really an avoidable situation. Sailquest students have a solid understanding of the realities of the sea and the yachts that sail on her and therefore are able to get the most from the yachting experience.

I really want SailQuest students to have a rewarding, valuable and wothwhile adventure in every course and join in sailing event we organize
