Coastal and off-shore training in Glasgow and on the West Coast of Scotland

Although we specialise in Inland Waterways related training you can often find our staff doing many things in tidal waters on the West Coast of Scotland.  This ranges from providing safety boat crew and timers  for the Honda RYA Youth Rib Championship to teaching Marine Coastguard (MCA) approved basic first aid for mariners (STCW) for some of our good friends.  We can even be found messing about in sailing yachts on the odd occasion.

Here are a few of our friends that we work with, that provide coastal and off-shore training should you wish to take your boating further afield.
