Sailing in Abu Dhabi

Topaz Uno

Learn to sail with Noukhada Sailing. As a sailing business that aims to get sailors, and aspiring sailors, out on the UAE coastal waters safely, our focus is on practical, hands on, sailing lessons. We do not have levels that we guarantee to award you after so many days training. Either you can do it, or you can’t, but we will teach you how and, along the way, assess your skills. How long does it take to learn to sail? This is a difficult one to answer because it really depends on the individual (you!). We have never managed to teach anyone to sail safely in less than 4 hours and it takes, usually, 8 hrs However, beware, a few people never really get it. We break our lessons down into four, 2 hr lessons, Lesson 1 to Lesson 4 (see table below). What boat do we learn in? The vast majority of teaching will be in our Topaz Unos boats. When are the lessons? Every afternoon except Sunday. Where? at the EMM launch point. How big are the groups? The group will never have more than 6 students. You might be lucky and only have 1 person in the group (you!). What do the lessons consist of? In the spirit of transparency, below is an outline of the syllabus which is much more water based (sailing) than classroom based. How long are the lessons? Each lesson is 2 hrs  |    Price? Each 2 hour scheduled lesson is AED 540 and a half a lesson, one hour, costs AED 300. How can I progress after L4? As part of our continuous improvement programme we will not only upgrade L1 to L4 but have produced L5 to L8 to bring you up to a basic understanding of racing. The upgrade L1 to L4 syllabus will be published soon and the new L5 to L8 soon after. Booking ring or email the office or book online
