    Hello to all!

    I am Michalis, currently studying Law at the University of London, 22 yo from Greece.
    I would like to know what should I do to learn and be eligible for sailing a yacht, i.e. what qualifications/certificates or diplomas do I need to gain in order to sail a yacht up to 25 meters.
    I am completely unfamiliar with yachting and I would be thankful if you could suggest me from where to start (even to suggest topics from this forum that might be helpful to take a picture of it).

    [A family-friend suggested that I should start with rya day skipper certificate and then to proceed with the rest with which I could sail a yacht up to 200GT. My question is, how many meters is approximately 200GT and what about rya?]

    With kind regards,

    Hi and welcome to YF.

    While you are studying in the UK maybe contact UKSA, the biggest school in Europe for training.
