Course Dates

Covid-19 Outbreak –

We will be offering some courses from our training centre from mid-August, in line with government guidelines. These courses may be moved online if UK guidelines change due to a second spike in virus numbers. We are also offering a selection of courses online, including oral prep.

We offer an extensive and comprehensive range of both RYA and MCA courses. Our School is set in the heart of Hoylake, on the beautiful Wirral peninsula in Northwest England.
