Suspension of practical training courses

In line with RYA recommendations, all face-to-face training and exams is currently suspended. If you'd like to start planning for 2021, we'd be delighted to talk you through the options. Please use the link below or the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Due to the current health crisis, we have postponed all face-to-face training courses and exams until at least February 2021. This is obviously a dynamic situation and we are constantly reviewing our position in light of recommendations and regulations issued by the Royal Yachting Association and the Spanish Maritime Authority.
