Göcek Sea School RYA Training Centre
Sailing in the clear turquoise waters of the Gulf of Fethiye or catching the zephyrs in your sails, which gust through Gocek’s Twelve Islands, yachting in Turkey is the experience of a lifetime. Gocek Sailing School is based in Turkey’s most popular region for sailing, and in the most perfect location for learning to sail or perfecting your sailing skills.
Who We Are
Since 1996, when Gocek Sailing School started the first official RYA courses in Turkey, this well-respected school has been organising courses at all levels; from Competent Crew, through to Day Skipper, Coastal and Offshore Yacht Master. We also run our own independent courses for those without sailing experience to prepare for a flotilla holiday, for which this region is so famous.
Gocek Sailing School is also an examination centre for the United Nations' ICC (International Certificate of Competence).
All Göcek Sailing School’s English speaking RYA instructors are qualified to the highest level, and with many years of sailing experience between them, there is no aspect of sailing with which they are not thoroughly competent.

RYA Start Yachting Course
A short introduction to sailing for complete beginners.
For an introduction to sailing why not participate in our own ‘START YACHTING’ course? The majority of our students learn more than they imagined possible and for those with no or little sailing experience but who like the idea of joining a flotilla for their holiday this is an ideal opportunity.
The Start Yachting’ course is for a minimum of two days. You will receive a Course Completion certificate, which is widely recognized.
RYA Competent Crew Course
This course is for beginners and those who would like to become active crew members rather than just passengers.
The COMPETENT CREW course will teach you the basics of sailing, help the skipper navigate and how to live safely day-to-day on a yacht.
No prior experience is necessary yet at the end of the course you will be the sort of crew that skippers want! A successful completion will give you a worthwhile certificate. Course length is six days.
RYA Day Skipper Course
A course for aspiring skippers with some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing skills.
A DAY SKIPPER course is for more experienced sailing crew, in which students learn how to take charge of a yacht and its crew. It is not for the beginner because you will be expected to be able to sail and navigate to DAY SKIPPER standard, having taken a shore-based course before attending.
Most people undertake a forty-hour shore based course at their local college or yacht club during the winter months but we can run them in Turkey with the instructor’s fee being shared between the students.
On successful completion of the practical course you will be certified competent to skipper a yacht by day in familiar waters.
RYA Coastal Skipper Course
Advanced skippering techniques for yachtsmen and women with considerable knowledge of sailing and navigation, wanting to undertake coastal passages by day and night.
Coastal Skipper is for the experienced skipper and can lead to a RYA/MCA examination for Yacht Master Coastal and commercial endorsement if you wish, which means that you can be a professional skipper.
You will learn advanced skippering and sailing skills as well as customs and other international regulations.
We normally try to sail overnight to a distant harbour to practice these advanced skills. Although most people pass the course it is very intense. Successful students are taught to skipper a yacht on coastal passages by day and night.
RYA Yacht Master Offshore Course
YACHTMASTER OFFSHORE training weeks can also be arranged if there are enough students. This is for highly experienced skippers who intend to take the RYA/MCA examination.
