Want to learn from scratch or just brush up your skills? It's all so easy with our range of RYA training options

Polish your skills, learn valuable new ones and gain confidence in a safe yet challenging environment with experienced instructors.

If you are taking to the water for the first time, or want to formalise your previous experience with RYA qualifications, our friendly team provides all the support and RYA training you’ll need on the journey to skippering your own boat.​​​​​​​

If you are a newly qualified Day Skipper, haven’t skippered a yacht or motorboat for a few years or just want to brush up on specific key skills, our bespoke training options will help you build your skills and confidence and feel more comfortable taking responsibility for a boat.


    "Myself and the crew feel really proud of our trip to France - My first across the channel and also my first as skipper.

    I’d like to thank everyone at Pure Latitude for helping to enable what would have seemed an impossible dream only 3 years ago."
