Techniques to Motorboat Handling

Motorboat Handling Training

This training is for those who don’t need the RYA Certificate but still want a qualified RYA Instructor onboard. The training will follow all national standard methods, teaching techniques that are suitable for beginners through to the more experienced boaters. We will ask you what you want to achieve and build you a suitable course to meet those objectives. It also leaves us free to alter the course if you request it.

Your instructor can cover subjects such as engine operation and maintenance, personal safety, vessel preparation, boat handling, securing to a buoy, man overboard, rules of the road and much more.

Courses can be booked from half a day to a full week depending on your requirements. We can teach both Inland and Coastal.

Passage & Pilotage Planning Workshop –
NEW FOR 2024

Cost: £110 per-person

Our one-day theory workshop has been designed and developed by us to spend time planning a coastal passage that you can use when out on the water. During the day we will spend time looking at the theory behind passage planning, a refresher on tides and tidal streams, use of waypoints and how these interact with electronic chartplotters and we will also look at pilotage techniques for entering and departing harbours.

Although there are no pre-requisites for the workshop, your knowledge should be to the level of the RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship course. If you are not sure if this workshop is right for you, please give us a call to discuss.

£110 per-person. (Also available away from our classroom, call to discuss).

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.
