Stu there are several correspondence courses which given your location would probably suit you. Not sure which are the best, you might have to pose the question on YBW.com

Rules for the boat are on the RYA Website and other requirements for the exam.

However you will need to learn to drive a boat first and get some hours in not just sitting around in the Norf Sea drinking tea

Oh and Viv says when are you shifting this 'orrible white console out of her garden

I took my Yachtmaster Offshore Theory with Chichester Maritime

http://www.cmonline.co.uk/

Found it well structured and laid out and the assessor/instructor was pretty supportive.

Bonus I found doing it that way is I could do at at my own pace.. although you need to make time to do it so need to have a little self-control to avoid hitting the pub instead

Pete

That's libelous that is! I have never drunk tea in my life, You'll be getting a letter from Mr. C. Nover of Sue, Grabbit and Fleece if your not careful!


Big fella thanks for the Heads up

I reccomend Ocean Training http://www.oceantraining.com/

I have done some work with them and viewed all of their teaching aids. Of the ones Ive seen (most of the RYA correspondannce courses) I think they are the best.

As always have a chat with the guys themselves and make sure they suit you

National Marine Correspondence School - not the cheapest but the materials and support and the doggies cojones...!

Highly reccomend them time and time again....and not being paid commission either...!

Tutor support as and when required, lots of supporting information and a sensible progression throughout...

Try em- they're excellent..!
