My Skipper Course
Structured training for boat owners to create an extremely solid foundation of skills and knowledge.
"Our personal skill set was basic but after 4 sessions with Neil, we feel we have progressed in our proficiency and we have gained greater confidence in our own abilities, Neil has an easy going mentoring style which instils confidence. His training style is such that you do everything - Neil steps in and takes physical control only when absolutely necessary. The learning experience is also great fun... we can't recommend Neil highly enough. "

Sydney Adventurer
"I look back to our first lesson and am impressed with the knowledge and skills we've acquired since then. We went from being nervous and intimidated by our boat to feeling competent and excited for the weekend so we can take her out. Mike and Neil provided great instruction and ensured we learned not only what to do...but WHY it should be done that way. I truly appreciate the amount of thought and care behind what the Above and Beyond Boating team does. Thank you for helping us make our boating dream come true! :D"

"What a great session we had with Roger last Friday, he is excellent. He gave us some great pointers the session before in a low wind situation, but with the big fluky blow last week, he had us working really hard and we all agreed how much we had learned under his guidance. Now it is a matter of us getting out there to practice!"

"What stood out was the wealth of practical experience that was brought to the class -- they are not only great teachers who are passionate about their subject, but have clearly thought about what works, what doesn't and how to do things better and safer. Really helps you think about how to organise and manage your own boat and crew."​​​​​​

My Skipper Course
per lesson
Each lesson lasts for four hours. It would always include a short brief and debriefing. We encourage you to have the boat ready to go prior to the start time of the lesson so we can be as efficient as possible with your time.

The lessons are scheduled online and can be added straight to your calendar. With true wind of over 25 kts, heavy rain or severe weather warnings rescheduling is available at no charge.
The Back Story
Above and Beyond Boating was founded in 2011 to support Sydney-based boat owners to not just learn about boat handling or sailing, but also teach the wider skills needed to confidently and safely skipper their boats.

They have worked with thousands of boat owners assisting them achieving a wide range of boating dreams.

One of the Above and Beyond Boating philosophies is to assist their customers to step outside of their nautical comfort zones and ensure that they achieve the goals they dreamed of when they purchased the boat.

They bring the skills and experience of world-class trainers straight to your vessel.
