Welcome to Derbyshire Canal Boat Tuition
Derbyshire Canal Boat Tuition is a friendly family run business operating between Shardlow, Swarkestone Lock and Willington, Derbyshire, that is fully qualified and insured to run the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) inland waterways Helmsman and Crew courses. The RYA is the recognised governing body for the boating leisure industry and a leading representative for the Inland waterways.
Your instructor Paul has spent over 48 years at sea, rivers and inland waterways and is a retired harbour and river pilot that holds a MCA Master unlimited certificate, but most importantly for you, holds the RYA Inland Waterways Instructor Certificate.
As our canal boat cornerstone is a RYA Recognised Training Centre, we’ll be using the RYA instruction and teaching methods throughout the course to make it fun and enjoyable whilst we cover the syllabus.
