At Atlantic Sailing

Our passion and love of sailing is contagious

RYA Sailing Courses and more in the Canary Islands

Our Mission at Atlantic Sailing is:

To share our passion and love of sailing in a safe, professional and fun environment.

Atlantic Sailing is a recognised RYA training centre based in Marina Lanzarote, in the charming town of Arrecife in Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands.

Our school offers both practical and theory RYA courses. We offer sail training courses from Start Yachting, Competent Crew, Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper to Yachtmaster. Our RYA Theory courses include RYA Day Skipper, Coastal and Yachtmaster in a classroom overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  In order to provide everyone with enough time to do the practical training, we take no more than 4 students per boat, unless it is a family or group of friends who choose to do so.

Being based in the Canary Islands gives us the advantage of enjoying year-round spring time weather, constant moderate wind, beautiful scenery, awe inspiring sea life, and a taste of the Atlantic Ocean.

We offer a variety of other types of sail training activities including Master Classes and Milebuilding or Adventure Ocean Sailing around the beautiful archipelago of the Canary Islands and beyond.


You can also book a berth or a whole yacht with one of our Skippered Sail Charters that will take you around the Canary Islands.


To book your next sailing course or adventure, please contact us.

Whether you're a beginner in sailing or working towards higher levels in the RYA training scheme, Atlantic Sailing offers you the whole range of the RYA Course syllabus delivered by experienced instructors and to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to safely skipper sail a yacht.

The various RYA levels are:

Wir sind stolz darauf, Atlantic Sailing-Qualitätstraining in Kombination mit RYA-Best Practices und Skipper-Trainings in deutscher Sprache anbieten zu können. Die Schulungen werden von RYA-zertifizierten deutschen Segellehrern auf RYA-codierten Yachten durchgeführt und von Atlantic Sailing als von der RYA akkreditierten Segelschule organisiert. Du kannst alle Vorteile des RYA-Schulungssystems nutzen, ohne sprachlich umzudenken. Lediglich das Ausstellen eines offiziellen RYA-Zertifikats ist am Ende des Kurses nicht möglich, da die Erlangung von RYA Lizenzen ein Training in englischer Sprache erfordern.

"Fadwa and Richard of Atlantic Sailing could not have the more perfect setup: their RYA school in Lanzarote is a perfect location for thrilling sailing, exciting winds, and great facilities. 
Richard's teaching style is supportive, encouraging, inspiring, and hugely experienced, making the environment a safe and really fun place to learn. Lanzarote is blessed with consistent warm temperatures as well as consistent wind which makes for some exciting and fast sailing!
I can't recommend Atlantic Sailing enough!"
