During the Winter months while the weather is less clement, we take full advantage of the downtime in offering a number of shorebased courses (some of them through outside partners).
Practical courses include:
First Aid which can be used by instructors and general members alike
Diesel Engine Maintenance to help prevent breakdowns while afloat
Marine Radio (SRC) - are you aware that if you have a VHF radio onboard your boat, or carry a handheld VHF whilst out on the water, you need to hold an operator's licence. It only takes a day to get your Marine Radio certificate
We also offer the following theory courses:
Day Skipper Theory runs over a number of evening and weekends and provides a comprehensive introduction for new skippers to navigation and seamanship.
Safe and Fun - an online course predominantly aimed at our members leading training, coaching, or looking after children or vulnerable adults, but open to all.
