Our powerboat training falls into three disciplines; open powerboats (up to 10m), motor cruisers (over 10m) and personal watercraft (Jet Skis). We run the full range of RYA courses in each discipline. We also offer a range of BWS Ski Boat Driver and BSAC dive boat operator courses.Learn More
Our RYA sailing courses fall into two disciplines - keelboating and sail cruising. Yacht sailing can be inshore, offshore or trans ocean. Bareboat and skippered charter are available. We also compete in a large number of International yacht racing events on both sides of the Atlantic.Learn More
We offer a wide range of support courses in First Aid, safety, communications, boat care, navigation and meteorology. A lot of courses lead to world recognised RYA, STCW or HSE qualifications, others are Stormforce specific courses such as 12-volt electric or Weather for Yachtsmen.Learn More

FAST TRACK COURSES
A range of modular training courses to allow sailors and power boaters to fast track their way into our industry. These courses work because they consolidate all of the necessary training into a short time period and we run with a low ratio of students to instructor.Learn More
