What are you actually looking for? Why not try Speaking to the RYA. John Pudifoot (RYA) might be able to point you in the right direction.

Second Fiona's recomendation of the RYA, but would try the training department. training's Tel. No. 0845 345 0384
Jon Mendez is the chief coach for the Power side.
jonathan.mendez@rya.org.uk

If you know who your regional contact is or a registered instructor in your region they are sent out a list of instructor courses in that region twice a year I think.

Try OceanPro.co.uk they operate out of the Itchen at Wolston or Stormforce they operate from Saxon wharf. The course lasts for three days and usually cost around 350 . Also I think they do them at the SWAC on the Itchen and at the sea training school in Warsash. (that's run by a guy called Nobby Clarke who is really good)

You could also try Paul Glatzels website. or if you want to get cold then give Wavelength a call in Blackpool Brrr

Nice to see you back Alex

Alex - Ring every contact you get, find out who will take the course and speak to them, then decide which one you get on well with and do they know what they're talking about - actually that's wrong - can they converse with you, OK knowing the info is one thing, it's being a good teacher and getting info across that counts !! it's very important that you connect with the instructor !!

If you want a weekend break and a bit of a laugh ring up UKSA in Cowes. It's like being at Boarding school, but good fun!
