Training Membership

Bespoke RYA courses and training for all boat types and experience levels

If you are taking to the water for the first time, or want to formalise your previous experience, our training memberships provide all the support and RYA training you'll need on the journey to skippering your own boat.

The right plan for you depends on the boats you want to use, your previous experience and the number of days you want to be on the water once you are a qualified and fully competent skipper. 

    "The on-hand support and mentoring, not just for me but for the whole family, has made the biggest difference to our enjoyment of getting afloat." 

Mark, member since 2012

Seasons and availability 

A key facet of any shared used scheme is the ability to get access at times that suit you. We manage both supply and demand carefully to ensure good availability. Your wide choice of boats and our seasonal booking calendar are important tools in achieving this. Annual training membership points are allocated equally across our three seasons.


Joining Fee 

A £495 one-off club joining fee applies to all new members and anyone rejoining after a break in membership. Our joining fee promotes continuous membership which allows us to regularly update the fleet and keep membership fees to a minimum - both of which benefit all.


Our induction service is a fun and informative way to get to know the club and boats. Through your training this happens naturally, but once qualified we charge induction at £40 / £60 per hour weekdays / weekends for boats you haven't yet used.


Skipper/Instructor - Charged in points to your low season points balance.

Fuel - Charged at cost plus an engine hour charge.

Cleaning - Available at extra charge

Catering - Availabe at extra charge
