RYA TRAINING CENTRE
The school is an RYA recognised training centre for Power, Motor Cruising, PWC/Jetski and Theory, teaching people to skipper boats with confidence. We provide tuition on our own school boats here in Lagos or on your own boat throughout the Algarve and Portugal. Our mission is to promote safety for all who put to sea or spend time on or near the water. This will be achieved by the highest quality training to RYA standards and all courses will be delivered by Rob Harris who is the most experienced principal/instructor for power in Portugal.
We are an RYA recognised training centre for Power Boat, PWC and Motor Cruising. All courses will be delivered in English, don’t worry if you are not fluent, Rob’s pace and style of delivery will make it easy for you to understand and he’s great at figuring out what you are saying!
We can train you on our school vessels here at our base in Marina de Lagos. We can run a course on your own boat throughout the Algarve, Portugal and worldwide, please click on the opposite links for more information.
We provide training and testing for the International Certificate of Competence, ICC. This certificate or licence is very useful as many European countries require the skipper of a pleasure craft to be able to provide evidence of his or her competence. In practice documentary evidence may seldom be inspected, but it is generally useful and in some countries essential to carry an ICC. Please see the following for more information; www.rya.org.uk
Considering buying your first yacht or speed boat, it can be a big help to have someone there who knows a bit about boats!! We assist people to decide on what type of boat is best for them and give unbiased information about the real cost of owning a boat. We can help you short list boats, arrange viewings and join you on your inspection, pointing out positive and negative aspects of each vessel. Please email Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
If you wish to charter a boat, with or without skipper, our partners at www.algarveyacht.com will be happy to help you plan your trip. They have a fleet that covers the whole of the Algarve and will make sure you have a great day out on the water.
