We'll explain how everything on the boat works so you have a full understanding of operating the equipment on board. On board the boat is a manual explaining how everything works. Hands on practice - We'll accompany you for at least an hour, making sure you are comfortable and capable in controlling the boat, giving you the opportunity to take control and operate the boat and become comfortable with her. we'll then leave you to continue your cruise at your own pace.
