the london school of sailing



A brief intro about LSS

We aim specifically to develop great skippers who will go on to inspire others to love sailing.

Now the aim is to continue to grow our already flourishing community of sailors, (both crew and skippers!) and continue to sail and explore more parts of the world.

We were conceived in 2014, by our founder Ruaraidh. Inspired by instructing hundreds of Yacht and Dinghy Training courses and seeing how the majority of students rarely put it into practice before forgetting everything.

After teaching dinghy sailing in Vassiliki for 6 years and seeing how receptive people are to learning in a friendly environment, we’ve set out to help sailors learn from the ground up.

Our last trip was probably one of my favorite holidays and I came not knowing anyone.
Relaxing, fun, lots of new friends and I learned that I love sailing! Would absolutely recommend

I’d recently done my day skippers and was nervous to skipper my own boat in Italy 2018.
Now I can’t wait to come back for more. Croatia 2019 here we come
