Have Fun and Gain Certificates and Qualifications at



Professional affiliations for our training

As part of the experience on SAIL CAMP and DIVE CAMP you can work towards obtaining certificates and qualifications during your adventure on board. 

We are committed to achieving professional excellence and are proud to partner with the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) for the sailing qualifications and PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) for our diving courses.  As internationally recognised training organisations they administer the assessment of the qualifications we award.

Since our certifications are recognised internationally, once you complete a programme you can easily build on your skills anywhere in the world.

Gaining advanced qualifications

The RYA Sail Cruising and Yachtmaster Scheme offers further qualifications including RYA Coastal skipper and RYA Yachtmaster Coastal and Offshore.  If you already have the basic sailing level qualifications then your time with SAIL CAMP can be used to gain mileage and experience towards getting these advanced qualifications. 

All young people who take part in SAIL CAMP will be encouraged to take up the opportunities for increasing their qualifications.  Many of our skippers and instructors discovered they wanted a career in the marine industry from doing these introductory courses. They then followed the RYA Cruising and Yachtmaster syllabus to advanced and commercial qualifications.

Find out more about all RYA courses offered at Sail Camp go to our learn to sail section.

Sail Camp Diving Qualifications

Just like the sailing certifications we offer, with PADI there is a clear progression in diving certifications.

Sail Camp on selected trips will offer various diving options from beginner to professional level training on board the yachts that provide the accommodation, classroom and equipment for the duration of the programme. All diving courses are from the PADI syllabus and are performance based not time based, meaning a student is coached until mastery is achieved.
