Important Update: VHF Courses

See our on-line VHF Radio Course. Clients praise this course......... Please book as early as you can on the Classroom VHF SRC Course. This is so that you can obtain your self study notes in good time before the course. You are obliged to self study for 3 hours prior to the course due to recent rule changes.

Client Feedback

"Thank you very much for the RYA course you provided. Your patience and understanding were much appreciated and we feel that the course was pitched at exactly the right level for two novices. The course content was sufficient without being overpowering and at the end of the day we both felt much more confident in our ability to safely handle our new narrowboat.

Thank you once more for what was a pleasant and informative day on the cut. We returned to the marina pleasantly tired out but also with a considerable sense of achievement."
