Bespoke Tuition

Training on your own boat offers an efficient way of including family and friends in all aspects of your boating.

We can tailor refresher and/or upskilling days for you and your crew, be that family or friends.

You can practice:

  • Safety drills such as Man Over Board recovery
  • Picking up a mooring buoy
  • Entering and exiting a lock
  • Berthing at different marina’s in the area
  • Anchoring
  • Preparing and executing a longer passage
  • Learning how to use your electronic navigation equipment
  • Learning how to use your own Radar

If you are new to the area or have not previously ventured too far from your home berth why not book one of our experienced Skippers to guide you on a familiarisation trip around the Solent – we can show you around the area, show you which Marinas to go to for pub lunches, how to navigate the Beaulieu River or the Bembridge Bar, visit the Needles, anchor in Osborne Bay, Navigate the Kings Harbour master procedure into Gun Wharf. . . . . .

Wherever you are (the location does not matter as we can travel to you**), we can help you to build your confidence while learning more about your own vessel.

Day Rate from £330.00 per day, which makes it great value.

When booking please specify the areas you want to concentrate on so we can ensure we give you the best instructor.
