Try Nigel Davies of Safewater Marine & Leisure, I have often worked with him in the past and never had complaints. His tel number is 07831 172 160.

Hi,

I've recently been looking at the various sea schools but have only managed to find 5 or 6 day courses, nothing shorter. Could you let me know what you manage to find out as I'd prefer to do it that way (if it's possible/practical/as good etc).

Cheers

Ade

I'm interested in this too - but I've heard something about there being two types of course - something like RYA recognised and RYA approved. The thrust of it was that only one of them could issue certification which was internationally recognised - anybody got any info on this ?

You can do an ICC International Certificate of Competence which is recognised all over Europe. Speak to the training section of the RYA they can send you a course syllabus as well as a list of all the RYA recognised sea school. With an ICC you will have your instructor as well as an independent examiner. So remember that the examiner will cost you extra. It used to be around £ 30 but that is while ago.
