RYA Helmsman is a two-day course covering basic boat handling, engine checks and safety.
This course is ideal for new owners conscious of the difficulty and hazards of boat handling in the marina. It is useful for crews as well as skippers. Apart from the obvious safety benefits of extra boat handlers on board, it adds interest if everyone can contribute to the trip.
All RYA Motor Cruising Courses are run through our parent company SeaRegs Training.
