As a training centre for powerboats, Grangewaters is recognised by the RYA – Royal Yachting Association. It's a great inland location to learn skills and background knowledge that form the basis of the International Certificate of Competence.

  • boat handling and seamanship
  • low speed close-quarters handling
  • 'man overboard' recovery
  • driving at planing speed – an introduction
  • collision regulations
