Own Boat Tuition
As well as a full range of RYA Course aboard our advanced RIBS´s, we offer own boat tuition in boat handling, passage making and engine maintenance.
Whatever boat you own, be it a Cruiser, RIB or Sports Boat, we offer a tutoring service. As well as the RYA Course syllabus, we can also purpose design tutoring sessions to tailor the day(s) to meet your specific needs.
Here are some examples of the type of courses we run on a regular basis:
1. Half day basic close quarters manoeuvring - £110.00
This session concentrates on building the confidence and skills to handle your own boat in close quarters situations such as mooring in a marina in tidal conditions, picking up mooring buoys singly and on trots, turning in narrow spaces and holding station.
2. RYA Powerboat 2 on own boat - £585.00
The complete RYA powerboat 2 qualification delivered aboard your own boat. This is a two day course covering close quarters handling, introduction to passage planning, pilotage, managing tides, weather forecasting and charting. Everything you need to know to be safe in your home waters in daylight. The maximum number we can instruct at one time is three people.
3. Introduction to Coastal cruising - £295.00
A one day session designed for owners with some experience but who want to use their boats to travel further this one day course concentrates on passage planning, pilotage.
