They say that “The happiest days of a boat owner’s life are the day they buy the boat and the day they sell the boat”… Perhaps, but I assure you that very little in life, is as rewarding and inspiring as boat ownership and the opportunity it brings to get out on the water and be truly free. Sitting in a quiet, peaceful anchorage, sipping a cool drink whilst watching the sun retreat below the horizon creates a smile at just the thought.
However, owning or chartering a boat can often mean considerable stress and pressure when it comes to boat handling (especially in marinas and tight spaces), passage planning, routine maintenance and undertaking daunting projects.
At Team Alpha we have always strived to build confidence and competence, derived from the knowledge that as the skipper you can command your boat safely and skilfully. Skills are abilities that require practice, and it is not always possible to have enough time or confidence to develop these skills, even on the best training course or when practising alone. This is where we can help. At Team Alpha we offer simply the opportunity for you to practice the skills you need in your own boat, in your own time with a coach/mentor, who is there to support and encourage.
From a few hours of boat handling in your local marina, essential practical man overboard (MOB) recovery and management, or a day at sea, to an adventure you’ve always wanted to navigate. We can offer 1-2-1, family or group coaching sessions. Valuable experience gained at your pace. We specialise in developing boat handling and practical skills, working with our clients to build ultimate confidence in fast boats. RHIBs, power cruisers and sailing craft of all sizes.
