Sailing enthusiasts are being offered the chance to work toward their day skipper certification in the stunning surrounding of Langkawi. The Langkawi Sailing School is based on the 99-island archipelago in the Andaman Sea off Malaysia and presents a perfect place for potential skippers to learn the necessary sailing skills. The school offers a RYA accredited Day Skipper Theory Course that is completed in 40 hours from November 10th to November 14th.

The shore-based tuition covers a range of important seamanship subjects for those wishing to take to the waves. From safety equipment (such as life jackets and harnesses) and emergency procedures (such as those followed in an overboard situation) to navigation and chart work, plotting and position fixing. Teaching includes workshops in rope work and anchor work as well as comprehensive instruction in nautical terms. Course students will be taught the basics of weather forecasting, tides and international shipping regulations before undertaking two examinations in order to complete the course. Those achieving a passing grade will be granted the Day Skipper Shore-Based certificate from the RYA.

Lek Boonlert, Head of Marketing at, said: “Anyone undertaking a shore-based sailing course in Langkawi will need to find accommodation on the archipelago’s islands. With limited accommodation available in the area early booking is always advisable. Those considering visiting the area to improve their sailing skills should look into the hotels Langkawi has to offer as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.”
