Train With Us

We are a recognised RYA training centre and have RYA approved instructors who can offer competent crew, day skipper and coastal skipper courses.



March 2021- We have heard that the lock gate at Liverpool Marina is not opening until 14th May. This has disrupted our early season plans for racing, taster days and a Start Yachting course. The committee are meeting to review plans.
