I can really recommend this to anyone who really wants a great adventure. You can choose to help, to officially learn how to sail or simply relax. I can honestly say that I felt a lot better than I had for awhile after sailing.


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 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.


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


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