On the day of your course

We ask that you please make sure that you have made provision for food and drinks. Our time in the classroom will be very limited.

Unfortunately, we will also not be able to provide waterproof jackets at this time, so it is your responsibility to bring warm suitable clothing for yourself.

  1. While social distancing is still being advised we will be restricting the theory work in the classroom to a minimum
  2. Joining instructions for courses will be the same as normal, here will be all the social distancing precautions taken in the classroom and on the boat, with alcohol hand gel available and you will be asked to sign a disclaimer to say that you and your family are not showing signs of covid -19
  3. Payments, we ask where possible for you to have prepaid for course either by bacs, PayPal or over the phone card payments – we will accept cash where this is not possible.
  4. Please ensure that you discard of any litter e.g coffee cups before going onto the pontoon as there are no bins on the pontoon or on the boat.

    • Clear plastic face visors
    • Set of plastic disposable gloves
    • We will have hand gel available

Deep cleaning at the end of each day will be carried out as our SOP’s and each vessel will be left ready for the next day!

Plastic visors will be cleaned thoroughly and left to dry overnight.
