RYA TRAINING - MOTOR CRUISING


RYA Motor Boat Helmsman Course

These 2 day motor boat courses are a relaxed introduction to motor cruising for beginners. There are no prerequisites, simply come along, learn a little and enjoy the experience!

The RYA Helmsman course includes an introduction to boating safety, helmsmanship, boat handling and engine maintenance. At the end of the course you should feel competent to handle a boats of a similar type in sheltered waters.

An RYA Helmsman certificate is awarded on successful completion of the course.

Solent based, weekend RYA courses start from Lymington Yacht Haven, Lymington.

Prices are from £435 and include accommodation, breakfast and lunch on board, fuel, mooring fees and use of wet weather gear.

Our team of top instructors and our immaculate 2005 Sealine 42/5, Oceanique, combine to provide the best motor cruising courses available!

Oceanique has a flybridge and is equipped with twin shaft drive diesel engines, electronic throttles, radar, chart plotter plus all home comforts including showers, microwave, flat screen TV/DVD - what more could you want!

Courses generally run with a student to instructor ratio (maximum 4:1). If you prefer the course to be run for just you and maybe your partner or friend this is also possible - call us for our private instruction rates.

The instructor for your course will be a fully qualified RYA Cruising or Yachtmaster Instructor.

Useful Pre Course Reading

It is handy to build up a small library of useful books and manuals covering seamanship, navigation and other specialist subjects such as weather. Please see our recommended list of reading and equipment.

The following books are particularly useful for  RYA Helmsman students

RYA Motor Cruising Handbook
RYA Motor Cruising - Syllabus & Logbook

...and after Helmsman Course?

You will almost certainly want to come back for more RYA motor boat courses - we take many repeat bookings! Consideration should be given to the Basic Navigation and Safety Course or Day Skipper Shorebased Course to help develop your knowledge.

The RYA Day Skipper Practical Course is the next step in terms of practical training so please call us to discuss.

If time away from work is an issue, have a look at our 9 Day RYA Combined Shorebased & Practical Course - this course is the most time efficient way of achieving both RYA qualifications!
