RYA Start Motor Cruising

NOTICE: We should resume our RYA Motor Cruising courses in late March 2022. Please contact us for more information.

This course is ideal for introducing friends or family members to crewing a motor boat, and for giving them an understanding of how they can assist the helm. We offer the course on a comfortable motor cruiser which has the added benefit of comfortable accommodation

We offer this course ‘whole boat’ privately to individuals, and friend and family groups

The ports, bays and harbours in our immediate vicinity are worth the trip in itself and if members of the group would prefer to relax rather than take the course we would love to have them
