Whether you are new to cruising or one of our many long established customers, you will find many useful tips on all aspects of boat craft by viewing these interactive tutorials. A cruising holiday is not only great fun but a wonderful adventure and well within the capability of most people. However, for the safety of you and your crew it is a condition of hire that you undertake instruction in the theory of boat craft prior to boarding your cruiser on the first day of your holiday.
Once you board your cruiser you will be given a further period of hands-on tuition by a trained member of staff who will accompany you until you feel totally confident in your ability to Captain your craft. We know from experience that our customers just can’t wait to complete their period of instruction before taking the helm. To assist you through this process we have made our training material available online so that you and your crew can complete the theoretical instruction prior to your arrival at our Marina.
It will take you approximately one hour to complete the tutorial but could save you up to three hours on the first day of your holiday. At the end of each module there are a few simple questions to help you assess your understanding. When you have finished all the modules, you should do the Captain's Quiz. When you have completed this, you will be asked to send us an email confirming your success. Customers unable to provide this documentary evidence of competency will be able to join one of the regular classroom training sessions held at each of our Marinas.
So why wait for your holiday to begin? Start it now by working your way through our Training program completing a couple of tutorials at a time. Before you know it you, and your crew, will be enjoying the most wonderful holiday, confidently cruising the beautiful waterways of the Shannon and Erne.
