Private Boat Training for Beginners

Docking causes everyone anxiety. I will fix that! On day one, I will take you from total novice to docking your boat. Using my years of experience as a Royal Navy Instructor and professional Yacht captain, I will take you through my proven skill builders that will get you your RESULT. You will be confident, safe, and having more fun on your boat! Day 2 we cover anchoring, avoiding other boats, safety, and I will train your crewmember too.
