Oban Sea School, an R.Y.A. training centre, was established in 1992 by Robert and Fiona Kincaid. Based in the stunning surroundings of Oban, in Argyll on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland, it is the ideal location for an RYA training centre. Whilst being easily accessible with good rail, bus and road links, the area offers numerous options and lots of interest, both by way of passage planning and sailing, as part of your R.Y.A. sail training course, and in the surrounding scenery and wildlife.
Offering quality sailing instruction from a very knowledgeable, capable and experienced instructor, on a modern, comfortable and well fitted out yacht, Oban Sea School is suitable for all abilities – no previous experience is necessary. Individuals, groups and families are all welcome on board.
Come and learn about cruising on a 5 day R.Y.A. sail training course whether it is a competent crew, day skipper or coastal skipper course, or simply enjoy a 10 or 12 day cruise around the islands off the west and north coasts of Scotland. Alternatively, perhaps a family sailing holiday exploring the many sheltered anchorages, spending time investigating rock pools on deserted beaches and enjoying the rugged scenery of the Scottish west coast is what appeals. Whatever course or sailing holiday you choose, you will have hands on experience at sailing and managing a yacht whilst sailing through some of the most breathtakingly beautiful and interesting scenery.
The west of Scotland is abundant with wildlife; you are sure to see some of the many sea birds and seals. Otters, dolphins and sea eagles are often spotted and you may be lucky enough to see a basking shark or a whale.

"None of us really knew what to expect but what we found and enjoyed was a well found boat (that now occupies a very fond place in our memories) and a professional, knowledgeable, vastly experienced, personable and fun instructor. We also dined like Kings which was very much appreciated."David W. Banks, Cumbria
