Confidence on the water


Being on the water, whether on the open sea or on the river, is a magical experience. Enjoyment is significantly enhanced when you understand your environment and equally you know what you don’t know! Undertaking a RDYC training course starts you on a positive path. Working with highly experienced instructors the mysteries of wind and tide become much easier to understand. Whether you simply want to come alongside with panache or you need to undertake a rescue come along and chat with us about the right course for you.
