customer feedback

“All of the course content was delivered with relevance and context.  Most of all, it absolutely improved my confidence and has encouraged me to step up more and give myself a go […] FIKA is beautiful, you are fantastic, the group was a heap of fun.   Overall experience was 10/10. ” – Ali

“Learning to sail onboard Fika in a warm, friendly and CALM atmosphere we feel contributed to our very successful 5-day sailing adventure.” – Simon & Jo

“I had a great time and I’m so glad I chose to go with you – I found you to be really patient, trusting, encouraging and kind as a person and teacher. That actually really means a lot as a newbie looking for guidance and with a tonne of questions – often it can be scary raising your hand in a community where there are a lot of experts.” – Claire


We offer diverse services to suit various interests and skill levels. Our services include thrilling sailing adventures, comprehensive sail training programs, and engaging shore-based learning opportunities.

Before taking a course, you should look carefully at the experience requirement and if necessary, discuss your level of ability with us at Paper Sailors Rock.


For Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper, it is highly recommended that you have at least commenced the Day Skipper theory course and completed the Coastal Skipper and RYA Yachtmaster Offshore theory. Paper Sailors Rock will make this easy for you by offering the theoretical component prior to the practical course.  

No, all RYA tuition, course materials and certificates are included in the price.
