From the basics of learning the ropes, to the fine art of advanced boat handling in marinas, the James Brooke Academy offers tailored training for individuals and families in the UK, the south of France, the Balearics, the Caribbean and Dubai.
We have a range of boats available for training at our UK operating base, all equipped with the very latest Garmin navigation technology and Volvo IPS joystick controls.
Practical and theory courses lead to MCA and RYA professional qualifications, up to Yachtmaster™, and include the popular International Certificate of Competence (ICC). Own-boat tuition can also be arranged anywhere in the world.
