A sailing school like no other
"Bringing together sailors from all corners of the globe for an enriching and eco-friendly learning experience."

allorca Sailing School was formed by a group of environmentally-aware sailing experts who came together to offer a pure sailing experience for both learners and seasoned skippers. Based in Palma de Mallorca in Spain’s sunny Balearic Islands, sailors benefit from ideal wind and weather conditions to be able to safely learn and practice the art of sailing across hundreds of miles of picturesque coastline, all in the comfort and security of modern boats. Mallorca sailing school takes you from stepping onto a boat for the first time to commanding crews and guiding yachts across thousands of miles.

We offer official RYA training and certification and focus our training and education exclusively on the discipline of sailing, opting to eschew powered forms of sea transport in favour of less disruptive maritime activities. With Mallorca Sailing School, learners can get their first taste of sailing in the protected Mediterranean waters while experienced yachtsmen and women can gain qualification or simply build miles to go towards their certification.

Mallorca Sailing School brings together like-minded people and fosters a sense of community and environmental pride among trainers and students alike for a learning experience like no other.

Why Mallorca?

Mallorca is the heart of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, where the long history and rich spirit of maritime exploration live on. For thousands of years, sailors have flocked to the rugged paradise to enjoy the fruits of the land and revel in its unique beauty, from the crystalline waters skirting the island to sprawling landscapes that reward journeyers on its mountaintops. Mallorcan culture is welcoming and generous, with both local and international communities coming together to enjoy everything the island has to offer.

With 300 days of sunshine a year and generous winds all year round, Mallorca is a sailor’s paradise. The island is lined with countless peaceful coves where sailors can seek refuge and rest from the open sea. Dive off your deck into the translucent blue waters, and enjoy a day or two in isolation or with fellow sailors in a secluded corner of the island.

Fancy a day in a lively Mediterranean city? Dock your boat in one of the marinas in Palma de Mallorca, the beautiful capital of the Balearics, where you can enjoy bustling shopping centres, restaurants offering traditional Mallorcan and Spanish cuisine, classical architecture, and esteemed art galleries.

Marvel at the spectacular 14th-century Gothic Roman landmark that is La Seu, “the Cathedral of the Light”. The sandstone monument protrudes above the city as you approach by boat, with flying buttresses that appear to rise up from the sea. The Cathedral is one of Europe’s tallest Gothic structures, and features one of the world’s largest stained glass windows, measuring almost 12 metres across. Gaudi himself contributed to the work, adding the wrought-iron canopy over the main altar in the early 20th century.

Competitive sailing in Mallorca

The Bay of Palma is the home of the annual Regatta Copa del Rey, which over its almost 40-year history has grown into a major event on the international sailing calendar. King Juan Carlos I of Spain himself won the cup twice in the 90s and still attends to this day, along with a host of other Spanish royalty and political figures. The regatta is hosted by the Real Club Náutico de Palma, growing to become one of the Mediterranean’s leading yacht clubs. Other prestigious sailing clubs on Mallorca include Puerto Portals, Yacht Club Cala d’Or, and Marina Tramontana.
