INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATE OF COMPETENCE Most European countries, for certain categories of pleasure craft, require the ICC. This can be obtained from the RYA after the successful completion of a test from a recognised training centre. We offer this test either on an own boat basis or on our own training boat. Tea and coffee are offered throughout the day and lunch is also included.
OWN BOAT TUITION We recommend this as a way of getting the best out of your new boat – you can learn more in a day with an instructor than in a whole season on your own or with well-meaning friends!
ELECTRONIC NAVIGATION COURSE (one day practical course at sea) There is more to using a Chart Plotter than just switching it on, so learn about the benefits and pitfalls, on our one day training course. The use of GPS will also be covered.
ONE DAY BOAT HANDLING COURSE Your experienced instructor will explain the main factors that affect how a yacht handles under power, and armed with this information, you will have the chance to put theory into practice. You will come away with a better understanding of how windage, prop walk, tide, rudder shape and prop wash effect your yacht and indeed can in many cases be harnessed to help you. We are often asked about ways to moor up when short-handed so time will also be spent looking at various methods to help. The day is run in a friendly and relaxed manner to help you get the most out of your time on the water.
ALL OF THE ABOVE COURSES ARE AVAILABLE AT A PRICE OF £220 PER PERSON FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 PERSONS BOOKING TOGETHER.
