EDU: Boating Skills

Being fully accessible, Wetwheels Yorkshire will have the capability of being used to train people of all abilities a variety of recognised and non-recognised boating skills courses.

She is MCA Coded (category 2) which means (with a commercially endorsed instructor), she can be used to deliver a wide range of RYA recognised boating courses. Depending on disability, some RYA courses may still be taught but endorsements may apply to your licence. For more details about RYA and commercial courses offered, please contact us. 

Boating Skills

However, for the vast majority of our clients, completing a formal boating qualification is not necessary but they may still wish to learn the basics. With this in mind, we have put together our own, simplified, boating knowledge course which includes learning about;

  • Different types of vessel
  • Knots
  • Nautical terms
  • Tides
  • Lights
  • Buouyage
  • The weather
  • Navigation
  • Electronics

These courses are unrecognised and do not constitute formal learning but certificates will be presented to those who complete the training.  It is hoped this will stimulate some to seek further, more formal boating qualifications.
