The Hendaye Sailing School

Welcome to Spi en Tête, the Hendaye and Basque Country sailing school !


Since 2007 we offer sailing classes and sailing cruises over the basque country coastline onboard 5-to-10 passengers yachts.Grand Surprise Hendaye

Come on board, cast off and go for it! We will drive you safely into the ocean, out of Hendaye for the gulf of Biscay. Let’s discover the marine scenery together : direct view onto the Urrugne « corniche » coastline when sailing towards Saint Jean de Luz on a day cruise, or deep dive into the natural versant of the Jaizkibel when exploring the spanish waters…

Focus on the view while you let the breeze and our captain bring you outside into the wild, or be your own boss : take the helm, master the strings, and for those with young pirates brought onboard, chase-up the other yachts around ! (Our boats are the fastest in the bay..;-)

What’s your schedule ?

Fancy a day like no other? We sail daily on custom duration : be it an « easy, calm waters, first time onboard » short sail of 1 hour, a morning or afternoon 2 to 3 hours cruise in the bay, a full day sailing trip to the beautiful bay of St Jean de Luz, or last but not least a sunset sail! See the light changing over the spanish coastline while you observe the first stars rising up…

Also on a full day trip, we link Hendaye to the local events and places : marine fundation Albaola in Pasajes, the San Sebastian international fireworks competition in august, the French gastronomy in St Jean de Luz Ciboure… name your choice and enjoy it from the sea!
