Own Boat Tuition

We understand that some clients may wish to learn in the familiar surroundings of their own boat. Our instructors are happy to teach in an, own boat enviroment, anything from a full RYA course to maybe just a day’s instruction on topics of your choice.

Instruction can be arranged at any time that is suitable for the client for a minimum of one day.

Cost: £300 per day for 2 people. £55 per day for each additional crew member.

There will be an extra charge to cover the instructor’s travel and the client will be responsible for feeding the instructor throughout the training.
