Bespoke Training & Support

We tailor our personalised and bespoke training to your needs.   This may be on your own boat or join us on ours.  Whatever your requirements are, from familiarisation of local area, or simply brushing up on boat handling.  We can assemble a course or training session that meets your requirements.  We can offer one to one or group training.  Contact us to chat through ideas and dates.

Own Boat:

Over the years we have worked with a variety of clients on their own boats.  Many are still in contact with us when things change on board and its great to form a long lasting relationship.  Perhaps they have new crew or new kit or want to undertake a new route.  Sometimes clients may be shorthanded and just want the reassurance of an extra competent person on board.  During lockdown we have moved boats for clients and helped with urgent jobs on board.  If you own boat we can train on there or alternatively, join us on our boats.

Our Boat

Those joining us on board our boats do so for a variety of reasons.  Perhaps you are thinking of getting a boat but not sure what to get.  Maybe you want to try different boats or even just see whether you enjoy boating.  Some prefer bespoke training to the perceived pressure of a course with syllabus constraints.  Many of you will join us if you have had a little time away form the water and want to refresh your skills.  Others may struggle to find sufficient time to join a full course.  Whatever your reasons we are happy to chat through ideas.
