Novice Training Day

A novice training day covers the fundamental operational and safety aspects of narrow boating, with plenty of hands-on skippering the boat, operating locks, negotiating bridges and winding (turning the boat around), coming alongside to moor and methods of securing the boat with ropes. There will be theoretical tuition with props and visual aids with advice for living aboard, buying a new or second hand boat and renting a hire boat for holidaying.
