I am an RYA Ocean Yachtmaster Examiner, as well as an RYA Radar and Diesel Engine instructor, with experience of teaching people from complete novices to sailors with an Atlantic crossing or two under their belts, on yachts from 28 to 68 feet long. Just so long as the yacht has a functioning kettle, it's a proper yacht.
The Shore-Based courses run are as follows, please click on them for each syllabus.
The Weather for Sailors Course is an intensive 1 day course going above and beyond the syllabus for RYA Ocean.
These courses can be arranged for groups of between 2 and 10 people, and are arranged individually, so please call and we can sort out dates to suit you. Please note that the RYA Diesel Engine Course is the exception to this rule - an engine is required so it is taught on the student's own boat with a maximum of 4 people.
