Harbour Handling Skills Improvement Day


Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners have worked together with the Royal Solent Yacht Club and the Royal Yachting Association to create another coaching session for boat owners. 

It is clear that some new boat owners have difficulty manoeuvring them, and others could use some help honing their skills.  In addition it might be worth considering some coaching for partners who may have to take over control of the boat in an emergency.

We very much hope that people will take advantage of this opportunity that the Commissioners are subsidising.

You do not have to be a member of either RSYC or RYA to participate.

Further information and an application form can be downloaded below.  Copies are also available from the Harbour Office reception desk.

Places are limited to 18 per session and will be booked on a first come/first served basis.

Further details and application form in Microsoft Word format.

Further details and application form .pdf format.

Fees are non-refundable for cancellations/no shows.

 We are also hoping to hold another training session in 2016, possibly early April.  Further details will be issued nearer the time.
