Tuition and Training

Sailing Yacht

I have been an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor and Examiner for many years, teaching all levels of the RYA scheme, shore-based theory and practical courses alike. Founder, Director and Chief Instructor of Seawings Sea Shool, I welcome you in Cascais/Lisbon on one of our yachts for practical training or for theory courses.

I also have four years of experience teaching the New Zealand Coastguard Courses as well as the Yachting New Zealand National Scheme. I can either teach you on your own boat, join on a charter yacht or welcome you aboard our yachts in Cascais, Portugal.

If you want to learn the basics before hiring a yacht in an exotic place, or get ready for the Yachtmaster examination, contact me for a chat and a quick quote.

Motor Cruiser

As an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor and Examiner for Power Driven Vessels, I can teach you many aspects of modern motor sailing: how to handle your boat safely, close quarters handling, how to come alongside and leave in busy marinas, navigation, man overboard recovery, collision regulations and more. I enjoy teaching in a friendly and relaxed manner, working at the speed you desire.

If you want to learn the basics of how to drive your boat or you are more experienced and want to prepare for an RYA/MCA Yachtmaster examination at your own pace (both fast tracked to get qualified ASAP or in a slower and more casual manner taking your time), contact me for a chat and a quick quote. I can join you on your own boat or a chartered vessel anywhere.

Power Boat

As an RYA Powerboat Instructor, I can teach you many aspects of correctly and safely sailing a powerboat: close quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, man overboard recovery, collision regulations as well as launching, mooring and anchoring.

I would be happy to welcome you in Cascais for a Powerboat course.

Did you know that the two days Powerboat level 2 course can be commercially endorsed by the RYA and is very useful to find a job as deckhand on superyachts for example? Feel free to contact me for more information and for a quote.
