Join in with Aigua... it's all about you

Aigua Sea School is one of the leading training centres in the Mediterranean. Established in 2006, the school headquarters is situated in the heart of Palma, the capital of Mallorca in the Spanish Balearic Islands. You'll find the school office in Santa Catalina, the vibrant hub of the yachting industry in Palma. We also run training courses from the Cala Nova Port Olympic marina very close to Palma harbour.

Our mission statement is to train you to be the best that you can be. We thrive as you succeed. Our outstanding reputation as a leading RYA Training Centre has been built on recommendation. The positive feedback from every one of our courses, and our high Yachtmaster success rate, is proof of our commitment to our students.

If you are looking to start yachting, then let us guide you with the Competent Crew sailing course or encourage you with a Day Skipper sail training course. If you favour motor yachts, then join in with our Day Skipper motor cruising courses and helmsman’s programme. As specialists in training for Yachtmaster Coastal, Yachtmaster Offshore and Yachtmaster Ocean, we strive for you to achieve at this highest level of yachting expertise, and form a basis for your future, professional careers.

Aigua Sea School is your sea school.

    First Aid training saves lives!

    First Aid training saves lives! Fact! We have a recent testimonial on this site from a student who took a first aid course here at Aigua, with Amanda Hewson as trainer, and she actually saved someone's life on a recent ocean crossing. How amazing is that? Join in this coming Saturday for an STCW Elementary First Aid training course ... one day you might be needed to make a difference between life and death.

  • Why VHF radio exams take more than 20 minutes!
    Why VHF radio exams take more than 20 minutes!

    It was queried recently why we, as in Aigua Sea School, take so long over the VHF radio exams. The answer is simply that a VHF radio exam must follow the guidelines as provided in RYA Training Guidance reference TG 02-14. The VHF exam, taken after you've completed the pre-exam knowledge check of the online course, is in two parts, well three really if you include the familiarisation as a 'section' of the exam. There is a written test, under exam conditions. We then proceed to the familiarisation with the radio sets ... we always provide at least two different types of training radio set to provide you with more 'hands-on' experience. Then we proceed to the practical section where the list of assessed elements is clearly defined: to include initiating a distress alert, urgency alerts and making routine calls. Plus being able to identify situations where a safety call or urgency call is appropriate, knowledge of deployment of SART and EPIRB etc etc. As a minimum the guidelines state that we should allow 30 minutes per exam candidate for the practical section alone, never mind the written test and familiarisation time. So, that's why exams take the time they do. Remember that a radio is a piece of life saving equipment ... would you really want to rush the training and exam process? No? We don't either!
