Shore Based Courses


Are you ready for life on the ocean wave?

If you spend much time on the water – either as a commercial operator or a frequent sailor – it’s a good idea to arm yourself with as many skills as possible. From first aid to diesel engine maintenance, and sea survival to navigation, our shore-based courses are a great way to gain new skills or qualifications. As well as preventing minor mishaps from turning into major ones, they could open up new career options, or let you plan some more ambitious sailing voyages.
