In 2020 we will introduce our new Day Skipper and Yachtmaster Shorebased course schedule. We will use a blended approach meaning most classes will be online and recorded. Attendance is required for some classes. Some subjects need personal tuition. We cherish getting to know our customers who become our friends. As a training establishment, our reward is the proud feeling of awarding our students their certificate at our annual dinner.
The course will begin on the week of October 19th , detailed schedule will be announced very soon. In the meantime, email to book a place on email@example.com or call 021 4811237.
