At Stormforce Coaching, we run a wide range of Shorebased training courses for sailors, powerboaters and divers. Our shorebased courses take place in our training centre in Southampton and range from short one day courses to longer eight day courses. Each course is designed to help you develop skills in specific areas such as radio, engine maintenance, first aid, navigation and survival. These courses allow you to focus on learning and developing skills while ashore, without the distractions of flapping sails or noisy engines.
Our shorebased courses encompass a variety of skill levels. Some of the shorter one day courses, such as the RYA First Aid and RYA SRC (VHF Radio) are suitable for complete beginners, whilst some of the longer courses, such as RYA Yachtmaster Shorebased and Master 200 are advanced level theoretical courses.
Whichever shorebased course you choose, you will find our resources second to none. We have five well equipped training rooms enabling us to simulate all forms of electronic navigation, marine radio, engine maintenance and First Aid scenarios. We also use a swimming pool for life raft training. Although these are essentially theoretical shorebased courses, they all have many practical, hands-on elements.
