Bay of Islands RYA Sailing School

BAYSAIL NZ is a practical Sailing School running the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) courses: competent crew, day skipper and coastal skipper onboard our Beneteau 381 ‘Atmosphere’.

Learn to sail in New Zealand! The Bay of Islands is a perfect base, with boating conditions ranging from tidal inlets, sheltered around the island sailing, to challenging and stunning coastal passages.

Ideal whether you are a complete beginner, who wants to get a taste for sailing, on-the-water life and the opportunity to explore an amazing cruising ground, through to those of you wanting to focus on developing your boat handling, navigation, skippering and general seamanship skills.

Our aim, whatever your ability, is to introduce you to a range of techniques and teach skills that may otherwise take years to learn without instruction. Thereby making sailing more enjoyable, and giving you confidence in your ability to crew or skipper a yacht.

Important Notice:

We wish to advise that Baysail NZ has now closed down and no longer operating. Therefore we are unable to offer any further course’s either now or in the future.

I would like to thank all those people who have done training with us in the past and may you continue to enjoy getting out on the water and hopefully you’ve all gone on to develop your sailing skills since training with us in the Bay of Islands
