    I would just like to offer my thanks to Mark your course instructor for teaching me some very valuable information during my attendance on the Essential navigation and seamanship course. Mark was a very good tutor and i learned a considerable amount of very useful information. i would also like to sign up for the VHF Marine radio course when one becomes available. Many Thanks Mark D

    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks very much for your kind comments and I’m pleased to hear that you found the course useful. I’m working to get enough students to run a VHF Radio Course and will keep you up to date on progress. We hope that your boating plans go well and that we will see more of you at the NWCC in the future.

      Regards, Mark Godwin

  • Sally Fishlock

    Will you be running any VHF courses soon please?

    Thank you

  • Martin Aherne


    I very recently passed my competent crew course. I’m now looking for sailing opportunities to practice my sailing. Do you offer any sailing days to help me practice my new skills? My new found friends from the course are also interested so i might have another one or two people if it would help with numbers?

    Thanks either way


    • Hi Martin, thank you for getting in touch and congratulations on passing the course. We run a lot of events throughout the year, including single day events such as last weekend’s May pursuit race, the upcoming Family cruise on June 10th and the ‘Big One’ race on June 24th. Your best bet is to pop into the Clubhouse when it is open (it is generally busier over the weekends or on one of the social event evenings) and have a chat with whoever is around.

    We are interested in doing the day skipper practical course and have already done the theory course. Do you do this and if so when?
    Thanks jill and Pete murphy

    • Hi Jill / Pete, many thanks for getting in touch about training. I have passed your query on to our chief instructor who will get back to you.

    • Hi Jill and Pete, we run Day Skipper and Yachtmaster Theory Courses, but not the Practical Courses, so I’m afraid that we can’t help you this time. You should be able to find places on a Day Skipper Practical at one of the Sailing Schools in the Conwy area.

      We expect to run a VHF DSC Radio Course in April or May. If this is of interest to you, please let me know.

    Morning, I am interested in one of your courses but I am self employed and sometimes get called out over the weekend, if i was to enrol for one of the courses but then missed a day due to work, would there be a way of catching up?
