Learn to Crew a Platu Keelboat

Our new 2 day Learn to Crew a Platu Keelboat offers you the chance to get out on Phuket's beautiful clear tropical waters and learn to sail one of the exciting new generation keelboats. The course is aimed at 2 days of practical sailing with very little time spent onshore in a classroom.

You learn through practical experience and even the theory is taught on the yacht too. See the syllabus below for a fuller picture of what is taught. Check out our sailing area in South East Phuket and youll see why this course is perfect for this island location.

This is a course that will teach you the basics of sailing in only two action packed days, mostly on the water. Teachers will be one step ahead of their students if you're doing the course before you bring a group to us. The course gives you a chance to experience the educational value of our adventure activity and to return to your school with a very good idea of what's going to happen for the students. This course is heavily discounted for teachers.
