Overview
More
Gib Sailing School is an RYA (Royal Yachting Association) recognised training centre situated in Alcaidesa Marina a short walk away from Gibraltar Airport. We offer RYA tidal sailing courses whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced sailor and skippered charter holidays for all the family. The Gibraltar Strait is one of the best areas in the world to learn to sail and is tidal. The weather is warm and sunny and with good winds throughout most of the year. The magnificent location allows us to visit the coast of Spain, Gibraltar, Algarve and Morocco and there is always the chance of spotting dolphins and whales.
