Not confident in taking your vessel across Breydon Water? For many this is a place of horror stories and vessel groundings. In reality it is a great stretch of water to cross as long as you plan your passage well. We can offer assistance in crossing Breydon Water for the first time.
Non RYA Training can be tailored to fully meet your needs. We can focus on the areas where you would like to gain more confidence without the need to undertake a full course. All of our training is still conducted by qualified RYA instructors so you know you are getting recognised quality advice. Or how about incorporating a day’s tuition with a coastal passage?
If you have taken some training but require a little more help and or training whilst heading out to sea we can offer owner assisted sea passages. We will put a MCA Commercially Endorsed Skipper onboard with you as crew to support with your coastal trip. Call us to discuss your requirements.
