MEET THE TEAM
Ocean Sports Tuition is a small and friendly company with a team of RYA Instructors from various backgrounds. Each of our RYA Instructors shares our values and passion for delivering the best possible experience both in the classroom and on the water. This passion is infectious and we endeavour to pass it on to all our students when they visit us, whatever course they are attending. We are often told “you have a great job” and we have to agree! We love sharing our passion and often keep in touch with clients to share news of their boating adventures for years to come.
Environment is also key. We believe that when students feel relaxed and comfortable they are best able to develop new skills. By providing the best possible environment to learn in, which is safe, fun and encouraging, students can feel at ease and excel in their learning. Our RYA Instructors strive to provide this environment for each and every course. They endeavor to a give personal service to every student. The team will do their utmost to ensure that all our customers feel like part of the family on our courses and gain a valuable, enjoyable experience that they would recommend to others.

Many thanks for a most enjoyable and interesting ‘Sea Survival’ course this last weekend; also for the warm welcome and hospitality shown to me by all at Ocean Sports. I feel that I have gained a great deal from this course, and especially by the superb way in which it was conducted by the tutor.
I intend taking my ‘advanced’ course in the near future – probably early next spring; Ocean will be my first choice for venue, and I will contact you to book nearer the time if this is okay.
Again, many thanks for an enjoyable course.

My husband and daughter just completed the powerboat level 2 course on July 16-17. They said it was a great course, good communications with Andy prior to the course beginning and excellent tuition on the day (thanks Jack) and would recommend to all. Time to buy a boat!
Just did the RYA Powerboat 2 course with Peter as the instructor. I would encourage anyone thinking of doing it to go for it. It's amazing how much you can pick up in two days and come away feeling much more confident in taking a boat out instead of not really knowing what you are doing.
Have just completed Powerboat Level 2, with my wife and a mate. Andy was very welcoming, everything well organised. Immaculate RIB supplied for the course. Our instructor Kerry Murray, was excellent. We all thoroughly enjoyed the two days and gained a great deal of new knowledge. I will happy recommend to anyone thinking about courses.
