A breath of fresh air

London is arguably one of the most exciting and vibrant places to be in the UK. For many, there is almost no better place to be, with so much to do and even more to see. However, there are some things that ‘The Big Smoke’ cannot offer. At the top of the list for us is obviously time on the water. Sure, it’s possible to enjoy a trip down the Thames or to potter around on one of the small boating lakes found throughout the capital. But nothing quite compares to spending the day sailing and breathing the fresh sea air on the beautiful South Coast.

Escape the city

Situated in Saxon Wharf Marina, Southampton, Ocean Sports Tuition are ideally placed to offer sailing courses less than a 90-minute direct train ride from the capital. This make it a fantastic destination for those looking to escape London and to enjoy a little time on the water. We offer a wide range of RYA boating courses suited to all abilities. From the RYA Level 1 Powerboat Course to Advanced Powerboat Instructor courses, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Learn the ropes on our sailing courses

For those who want to experience a truly clean adventure, leaving the engines aside and enjoying the thrill of yacht sailing courses is a fantastic way to do so. If you’re a complete beginner but would like to learn the ropes and begin your training, the Start Sailing course is a great first step. Equally, if you are a seasoned sailor with 1000’s of miles under your belt and plenty of skippering experience who is interested in a little more than day sailing, you may find that the RYA Yachtmaster courses could be the perfect way to secure further advanced yachting opportunities. Whether you want to spend the day sailing along the stunning English coastlines or gain new skills, we have boating courses to suit you.

Learn the theory behind it all with the RYA theory online courses

For many of these courses, there are theory elements required to pass. In order to reduce waste and provide opportunities to a wider audience, we are able to offer RYA online theory courses across a range of theory areas. This includes the VHF course which is an essential requirement when enrolling on a number of the more advanced courses. However, they are also incredibly useful skills for anytime that you take to the water. With the RYA online theory courses available in partnership with Navathome, this provides the ideal foundation for your next boating course with Ocean Sports Tuition.

Boat charters to suit everyone

Alternatively, if you’re not looking to enrol on a course for a formal qualification, we can also offer boat charter opportunities. This gives you the chance to enjoy time on the water, with the freedom to explore and go about at your own pace. With various options to choose from, including bare boat charters and fully skippered boat charters, this option is available for both beginners and experienced boaters alike.
