RYA Motor Cruising

Brand new for the 2017 season, Ocean Sports Tuition has now been recognised to offer the full range of RYA Motor cruising courses. With a vast experience of delivering the RYA Powerboat scheme we have decided to expand the courses on offer. From booking through to course completion we strive to provide all our students with a supportive and friendly learning environment.

All our courses will take place on “Broke the Bank” a 36ft Bavaria sports cruiser or if your a boat owner, take advantage of our own boat training. This is where the training takes place on your boat, in your home port with you and your friends or family.

The RYA Motor Cruising courses include:

  • RYA Helmsman
  • RYA Day Skipper
  • RYA Advanced Navigation
  • RYA Coastal Skipper
  • RYA MCA Yachtmaster coastal or offshore prep and exam

If your new to motor boating then the 2 day helmsman course is the perfect starting point, on completion of the course you will have a basic understanding of how to handle a motor cruiser in sheltered waters. If your looking to further develop your skipping skills then the 4 day RYA Day Skipper course is the course for you. On completion of the RYA Day Skipper course you will be able to take charge and skipper a motor boat in familiar waters.

For those students that are looking to go on coastal passages the 5 day RYA Coastal Skipper course will teach you the skills to be able to skipper a motor boat on coastal passages by day and night time.

All our motor cruising courses are inclusive of fuel, moorings breakfasts and lunches and accommodation onboard. We also have an option to book the whole cabin whist on board making your stay a bit more comfortable.
