What is the Oceanwest Own Boat Training Programme all about?

Do you own a yacht but don’t feel confident enough to head off on coastal sailing adventures?

Do you want to build a solid foundation of core sailing and boating skills?

With the Oceanwest Own Boat Training programme we will tailor a programme to suit your needs exactly. We can run a one day session or why not book your RYA practical course on your own boat for up to 5 people. Competent Crew, Dayskipper, Coastal Skipper or even Yachtmaster prep. We can run all of the official RYA courses on your yacht.

You can learn how to confidently handle your yacht in confined spaces, practice safe and controlled berthing techniques in the marina.

Practice anchoring and pick up moorings, try your hand at Mediterranean mooring techniques, and recovering a man overboard.

Improve your skills with real life navigation and how to use your electronic equipment.

Learn pilotage techniques for entering and leaving harbour, plus how to plan a passage.

And much more – whatever you need to give you the confidence and skills to enjoy your yacht.
