Sail YSL Weather

What people say…

A really enjoyable, quite intense course – a big big thanks to the skipper Emma at Sail YSL for a very well structured course . .


Thanks for the very effective yet relaxed teaching method you employed to make us understand and assimilate so much in only 5 days. I truly enjoyed the learning and am now looking forward to doing the practical part of the Day Skipper certification.


I wanted to say that I’ve had such a great time with Sail YSL. If you are even slightly interested in sailing, I highly recommend you take one of the Sail YSL courses. You will be challenged and entertained but you will not be sorry.


Sailing with Emma in Greece was simply lovely. My aim for this week was to gain confidence, which I did. Thank you Emma! I cannot wait for the next season.


I can highly recommend Sail YSL to anyone who longs to be out on the water in a small boat in a relaxed, authentic sailing experience.
