The SailQuest 10 Day IYT Sailing Course is a carefully organized, fast paced Learn to Sail program based at Ocean Marina, Pattaya, Thailand. This action-packed sailing school is targeted towards people who want to develop the knowledge, skills, confidence and experience to excel on the water, whether day sailing or cruising the world.
Our internationally recognized yachting certificates from IYT, ICC and NauticEd provide students with the qualifications needed to own, operate and charter yachts worldwide.
As you will see in the SailQuest 10 Day Sailing Course Daily Program, we pack a lot of action into the time students spend with us. First and foremost, students typically sail over 200+ nautical miles during this course. These are valuable training miles where students will be taking an active part in the operation of the boat alongside experienced instructors.
SailQuest students get the coaching and guidance they need to become confident sailors, crew members, captains or owners and gain a practical understanding of yacht operation and management.

SailQuest Update - Response to Corona Virus/COVID-19
As I am sure you are aware, the Corona Virus/COVID-19 is creating international travel issues. At this time, however, it is business as usual at SailQuest Sailing School and all scheduled course dates and sailing events are still running as scheduled. It is a great time of year for sailing here in the Gulf of Thailand!
To keep updated on the situation in Thailand and restrictions regarding incoming visitors, see the Thailand Department of Disease Control website. Travelers should also be aware of any warnings or restrictions that may be posted in the country you will return to following your SailQuest dates.
This situation will certainly effect some who have already booked course or event dates or those who may be thinking of doing so. The SailQuest refund and re-schedule policy remains the same as always. If for any reason you need to cancel your booking, we will issue a full refund of your booking deposit or full payment, minus any bank transfer fees. Or we can hold your payment and you can re-schedule to more convenient dates as your schedule allows.
We are also implementing a daily temperature check policy for instructors and students and encouraging continued good hygiene practices for all. Anyone who is not feeling well or showing symptoms… please stay home!
These are tough times for travelers and business owners alike, but we are all trying to make the best of it.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
Good health and Happy Sailing!
