Online Skipper Course
World-class training to ensure you achieve your boating dreams...
Do you have a boat that should be very capable of coastal adventures but find you are not actually going on them? 
Have you found you are not using the boat as much as you had anticipated you would?   
Do you find owning a boat that is not being used can be quite stressful?

The Challenge

As a boat owner in the age of youtube and online forums one of the biggest challenges out there is to filter through the mountains of information available to find what is  of value and how to implement it on your boat.

The advice available flows from, marina staff, friends who "know boats", forums and many other resources available, we find on most boats that often seemingly minor details about your specific boating scenario can mean that implementing well meaning advice does not give the outcome your were hoping for.

After working with thousands of boat owners, we have fine tuned the perfect skill set you need.

The Solution

Boat owners who use their boats to their full potential are the ones who realise they don't know everything. But they also, do something about it!

The most confident and competent boat owners we see every day, are the ones who take the time to understand their boat and the systems on board, meaning they can feel more relaxed about being the skipper.

Really successful boat ownership stories come from applying transferable processes to everything onboard, from berthing the boat to managing major equipment failure without it being a big deal.
The Proof

After 20 years of delivering training for people on their boats and measuring what works and consulting with some of the best skipper trainers on the planet, we have drilled down to identify the most important factors that you need to know for skippering a modern cruising boat. We have put this into a step-by-step program The Online Skipper.

The focus is  purely on what's most important to using your boat, making you safer and more relaxed with your family, friends and crew.
The Focus

It is hard to find extra time for learning new skills. Learning in a group can often mean even more days not spent on your boat that year or even working out the time in your calendar to have a skipper mentor come to the boat can be tricky.

Some elements of skippering can involving winging it, but even when you are doing that it comes from having the skills and confidence to know you can make good decisions in an evolving plan.

If you are ready to get more out of owning a boat than your could have ever dreamed possible, then this program is for you.
The Online Skipper Course
As part of The Online Skipper Course, you will have access to the best boat handling, skippering, passage making and boat management out there.

It's heart breaking to see so many beautiful boats that are simply not getting used, sitting waiting for their turn to go on an adventure!

Skippering is a skill and in the course you will discover tried and proven techniques for your boating adventures.

Too many boat owners focus on trying to get more out of their boat ownership by simply purchasing more stuff, and not focusing on the bigger picture of why they are not getting as much use from the boat as they wanted.

Successful skippering comes with your own style, but with the confidence that you are being safe and not depreciating your boat unnecessarily from misuse.
