Our boat handling courses comprise of a series of practical courses which can be complemented by our navigation courses and other one-day support courses. Use them simply to increase your knowledge and confidence, or as a progression to the RYA / MCA Certificates of Competence which are recognised by maritime authorities worldwide – see the Certificates of Competence section on the left.

Most courses take place over two days. By taking your course at an RYA Recognised Training Centre you can expect to be taught by an experienced, qualified instructor on seaworthy boats with a maximum of six trainees (depending on the level of course). Courses can be taken either onboard a centre’s boat or your own boat.
