Welcome to MOSS Sailing School

MOSS-Sailing is the first RYA training center in the Netherlands. We introduced the RYA to the Netherlands in 2006  and offer the full range of RYA sailing courses from RYA Competent Crew to RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore.

About Us

After sailing with the best schools in the UK, heart of the professional sailing industry, we decided to introduce this quality way of sailing instruction in the Netherlands.

Not only are we the first, but also the most dedicated RYA school in Northern Europe. We don't mix national systems, we just believe in the RYA as the only world wide recognized organization and our aim is to keep on providing quality tuition to the novice sailor up to the professional.

Sailing Area's

With close access to the Waddenzee and North sea. we are situated in the most ideal location to provide tidal as well as non-tidal courses.
From basic RYA courses to international passage making to England, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden,  Norway, Scotland and Iceland, we will make your sailing dreams come true.

Our Skippers

All our skippers and instructors are fully RYA certified and qualified to run courses. They will never forget the satisfaction and pleasure which sailing brought them and will teach you in a dedicated and friendly way the skills of sailing.

Living Aboard

Candidates live aboard for the duration of the course and it is an excellent opportunity to visit some of the scenic ports in the IJsselmeer and Waddenzee as we will stay in different ports every night. With close access to Tidal waters we have the unique location to start or complete your sailing ambitions.

No Hidden Costs

At MOSS-Sailing we do not believe in hidden costs or additional fees. Accommodation, food on board, harbour fees, diesel, etc is all included in all our RYA courses. Just bring your own personal stuff and we take care of the rest!
