All two day courses require a minimum number of participants to run for the full duration. However, we pride ourselves on never cancelling a course due to low numbers. Instead we can run a course in a reduced amount of time. For example a course with a ratio of 1:1 will run for 1 1/2 days. 

 

The boats we use for all courses are 4.5-metre, 50hp RIBs and various 15-30hp Rigiflex boats.
