OUR RYA COURSES
FOR OWN BOAT UNDER 10M

Below is a list of our RYA Tidal courses together with some information regarding their content and suitability. We have a flexible approach to our courses and will always try our best to meet your specific training requirements. We also provide own boat tuition for many of these courses. Our Practical courses will have a maximum of three students per course to allow plenty of ‘hands on’ experience for everyone.
We schedule our courses to allow “follow on” packages where for example you could follow up a day skipper with a VHF course, or even combine the practical courses with a follow up theory course and get your certificate completed in one go! We aim to ensure effective learning with maximum enjoyment; after all, that’s why most people get into boating in the first place!
