For the past 12 years ACT has been active in offering opportunities to sail at sea and learn how to operate offshore sailing boats to students. Students are also offered the chance to earn an international Coast Skipper license. Students attending Sailing courses at ACT can earn both academic credit and a License or Certificate. The certification can be done as a program itself or used to supplement a longer study abroad term.

* Racing Sailing students will have the chance to participate in local events with the possibility of competing throughout Greece.
What`s IncludedThere are two course options:
The Coastal Sailing Skipper (Course and License) is where students will learn to operate an open-sea sailboat (36+ ft) and will receive an international sailing license and academic credit upon completion of the on-board and theoretical lessons. This license will allow you to skipper a boat on your own.
The Racing Sailing Certificate is a course aimed at those looking for a more intense, vigorous, and demanding experience on the seas- great for those looking for an adrenaline kick! The syllabus involves hours of practice and a chance to participate in the local Sailing Championship of Thessaloniki.
