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?  |  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  |  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
