Duration: 5 weeks 

Pre-requirements: Yachtmaster Offshore Sail

Achieving your conversion miles at 20 knots frees off more time for close quarter manoeuvres. We can easily cover two 60 mile passages in a day.

We offer you the very best professional training, on a luxury fully Air Conditioned 47 foot Prestige 46 with twin 480hp Volvo Turbo diesel engines.  The training is as much about the management of on board systems as it is about boat handling so we decided to buy something well equipped, rather than just basic entry level. We also want our clients to enjoy the course, be safe and be able to deal with on board system failures as they arise.  On board systems training is only possible if you have the equipment to work with and many schools boats simply do not offer anything other than the very basics.
