The sailing course Thailand is designed to give you the complete experience of a passage by living aboard the yacht Yun Khan for 5 days.  The yacht will travel between the surrounding islands, allowing you to log a minimum of 100 Nautical hours, 4 of which will be overnight.  During the course, the required academics will be covered, and the practical skills will be taught and shared among the students, instructor, and crew.  Beyond the sailing duties, all other on board responsibilities like cooking, cleaning, and night shifts will be shared.  Every evening dinner will be served on land however which islands and locations will be determined by current weather conditions.  Upon completion of the course you will receive an Ocean Hiker Competent Crew card recognizable by other certifying agencies.  Experiencing a real passage over the 5 days will give you the most authentic experience of Ocean sailing, and builds passion for life on the sea.


The sailing course Thailand typically departs from Koh Tao, but for an extra fee on can depart from Koh Phangan or Koh Samui.  During the north-eastern monsoon from December to March this sailing course will start from Ko Lipe located in the south west of Thailand in the Andaman Sea.

There is also the possibility of experiencing this course as a private charter.  No other students will be on board, and the services of the crew will focus on your journey and experience.  Please inquire for more information.

Space is limited aboard the yacht Yun Khan,  so only pack the basics necessary for the journey.  Extra luggage can be stored at our Koh Tao office and kept safe until your return.
