We offer the core RYA Helmsman’s Course and RYA Crew Course which will help you to get started or to improve on your boating skills.

Own boat tuition can be arranged and if you have your own boat we can come to you.

If you don't need a qualification, we can arrange personal tuition to suit your needs and help you improve your skills.

And for corporate customers, try a day out on the water with a team building day.

RYA Inland Waterways helmsman’s course

This course is for anyone wanting to travel onthe UK’s inland waterways or Europe’s extensive network of lakes, rivers and canals. It deals specifically with the requirements of the inland boater, whether they be a narrow boat owner or cruiser enthusiast.

It assumes no prior knowledge and so is ideal for the first timer, yet the more seasoned boater will learn plenty of tricks of the trade and tips to make their boating safer and more enjoyable.

This is a two day course and can be taken either on our boat or on your own boat.

Experienced steerers can gain the qualification in one day but please note that this is an assessment and offers no tuition.

RYA Inland Waterways Crew Course

This is an entry level course and can be run in conjunction with the Inland Waterways Helmsmans course for mixed ability groups or families.

This course is ideal for introducing friends or family members to crewing a vessel on the inland waterways, and for giving them an understanding of how they can assist the steerer..

Your instructor will cover all the basics of being a useful crew member, including personal safety; communication on board; throwing a mooring line; some basic boat handling; helping in locking operations; how to be a good look out; what to do in an emergency and looking after the environment.
