Atlantic Sailing is the leading professional sail training centre in the Canary Islands. Our base in Lanzarote and 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 are 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.

We offer a variety of other types of sail training activities including, short handed sail training for couples, own boat tuition, Master Classes and Mile Building 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.
