Private Tuition – ICC Preparation (& Assessment)

The ICC or International Certificate of Competence for leisure sail yachts and power boats up to 10 metres is the minimum requirement for Bareboat Sail Yacht Charter in many holiday locations across the world.

This is our most popular offering and last season alone over 20 people became qualified. It is an alternative to 10 days of training normally required to complete the RYA Day Skipper.

See the attachment for more information –

If this course of action is right for you then send a booking enquiry to Peter to get some dates sorted.

More details and Tariff can be seen above.


Cardiff Yachting Company Private Tuition – Premier Taster Session

Tempted to have a go, want to be more than a passenger, not too many people, a fair time to reflect on whether I want to do more, or at least I’ve had a go – then consider:

The 3-4 hour morning, lunchtime, afternoon or evening sessions will run from our berth outside Pier 64 at Penarth Marina and will take place on Cardiff Bay, so no tide times or taking time locking in and out of Cardiff Barrage.

Most of the session will be for you to get hands on experience on our sail yacht X Beat II in Cardiff Bay. The Skipper will demonstrate and you can have a go at some of the practical exercises required for the International Certificate of Competence – see above section.

There will be plenty of time to explain options available for further development.

Have a look at our schedule above to see when you can get underway with and send off a booking enquiry form. We will get back to you within 24 hours.


Private Tuition – Knowledge, Skills, and Refresher Training

From course to steer including leeway, tidal heights, passage planning and even ocean planning, if you want some 1:1 tuition we can help.

Or if you have just taken a delivery of a new boat (motor or sail) and would like someone to help you through the initial couple of trips, then give us a call.

By booking a skills session, even a half-day, this will allow you time to get back on the water and practice the mooring skills that time has not only allowed you to forget, but also created a confidence gap as well. See Tariff Table above for costs.

We can provide this service aboard your own boat – see Your Yacht Services Page


Private Tuition – Master Exam Coaching

We provide skills development sessions focused on the requirements for the exam and your training needs. This means that the time (and money) is efficiently targeted.

We run a 2 x 2 day modular ‘Advanced Navigation and Seamanship Course’ course which aims to provide you with strategies on areas likely to be tested during the exam including the dreaded ‘blind navigation’ exercise. For a summary see the this pdf – Modular Adv Nav Information 2020

Alternatively we could do daily sessions – See Tariff Table above for costs.
