The RAK Sailing Academy was opened in December 2012 by Italy’s well known Malingri di Bagnolo family. The Academy is overseen by experienced sailors, Captain John Curran, Eduardo Callegari and Matteo Bassan.
Sailing programs are divided into two main categories which are dinghy and keel boats. Each category has its own set of courses, increasing students’ experience over time. Sailing classes are categorized by different ages and skills. The school follows ISAF (International Sailing Federation) rules for its sailing instructors.
The RAK Sailing Academy is equipped with dinghy, catamaran and fix keel sailing boats. At the facility people can rent different types of sailing boats for training courses or for leisure. The Marina also has a day charter facility where sailing boats can be used for daily excursions.
