RYA Training (internationally recognised)
Whether you have never been on a yacht, or you just want to learn a bit more, we offer professionally run courses which will give you internationally recognised qualifications.
If you are planning to charter locally or internationally, we can offer courses which will give you the knowledge and ability to make it safe and enjoyable, as well as the certificate to present to the charter company.
Our practical courses are run on “Mohawk” a Bennetau 40.7, which is ideal for training in a safe and comfortable environment. Our training ground is the Gold Coast and Moreton Bay. All courses are run from our base.
Your instructors are RYA qualified and will ensure your learning experience is fun, and exciting. We adapt the courses to suit all learning styles and personal preferences. The accommodation and food will set the ideal learning environment to ensure that you have a fantastic week with us.
The experience was a perfect mix between learning and fun. Terence and Dylan were so helpful and patient when showing me the ropes (literally). I learnt so much and want to learn more! I HIGHLY recommend Mainstay Sailing! Such great people and a brilliant experience overall. Excited to do it again!
From the moment I started at mainstay sailing I was amazed at how much more I could learn on top of what I thought I already knew. Terence has a heart of gold. I took my RYA Dayskipper, Coastal skipper and Yachtmaster offshore course at Mainstay. Some great memories with Mainstay and Mohawk! We were even able to do a week of training in Tasmania on the Southern Ocean. From beginners to seasoned veterans I highly recommend Terence and Mainstay sailing! Also the food is amazing!
I had taken sailing courses in the Solent in UK before and was looking for a RYA school to help me progressing. With Mainstay Sailing I found the best address. I was on-board of Mohawk for mile builders and a day skipper course as well as following the Instructor on an adventure to Tasmania. I also passed my theory exam as well as VHF and Sea Survival and Safety with them. 5 stars for knowledge, fun and last but not least delicious food. See you soon for more adventures.
