Derbyshire canal boat tuition
Derbyshire canal boat tuition is a RYA Recognised Training Centre. We carry out the Inland waterways RYA Helmsman course, we also conduct the RYA crew course. We are fully qualified and insured. The Helmsman course is a 2 day course. The crew course is 1 day. A max of 3 persons on each course and a minimum of 2. These course’s are carried out on our 47 foot narrow boat “Cornerstone” on the Trent and Mersey canal and also the River Trent if required. We can also carry out the course on your own boat wherever you may be. Successful candidates will receive a RYA Helmsman certificate. This certificate is acknowledged throughout the inland waterways. We want to keep the canals safe and enjoyable, so the Helmsman and crew course are ideal for beginners or boaters just wanting that little bit more confidence. Of coarse experienced boaters are welcome, they can do a 1 day direct assessment without tuition for their certificate. Have fun while learning and all the time keeping safe.
Disability Access Information
Access will be at either Swarkstone lock towpath or Shardlow, There are slight slopes and steps at the various locks we will pass through. Due to the nature of the course and the layout of the boat we can not take wheelchairs.
