Nave Pegos is very proud to have been delivering RYA shore based courses at the boat academy for 5 years with Allabroad sailing instructors and now is able to offer skippered courses on fully coded MCA vessels.

Faro is a great place to learn and only 10 minutes from airport it incorporates the well known Portuguese Algarve and the lesser known Spanish Costa de la Luz. The area boasts golden sandy beaches, warm weather, crystal clear waters, friendly people, great food, stunning sunsets and the fact that it is tidal makes it a great place to learn, Our unique location in the Ria Formosa and a 3 hour sail to Guadiana river, which is navigable up to 30 miles inland, allows us to sail all year round regardless of the weather, guaranteeing that you will sail every day of your course and there should be no days lost due to bad weather.
