Boat Safety Scheme Certificate

A Boat Safety Scheme Certificate is required if you maintain or use your boat on inland waterways, such as canals or rivers run by the Canal and River Trust or the Norfolk Broads. Every four years, the certificate must be renewed.

The majority of boats used on inland waters should generally comply with the program since it has been in place for more than 20 years, but similar to the MOT for cars, there may be particular concerns that need to be resolved before a new certificate can be awarded. There are exceptions for relatively tiny craft such open outboard propelled craft, canoes, and rowing dinghies.

Learn how to sail in the UK

The three most common ways that people learn to sail are with a friend who already sails, at a sailing school or yacht club that is recognized by the RYA, or while on vacation, frequently in a warm, sunny country. Many current boat owners are self-taught, particularly in the UK, where no license is needed to skipper your own boat as long as it isn’t being used for business. Many of these individuals began their training at a young age and gradually advanced to larger boats, a path they frequently advocate for other people. However, there are also efficient approaches to learning acceleration that will hasten the development of your skills.

The UK’s national regulating body for recreational sailing is the Royal Yachting Association (RYA). It offers a thorough training program that covers the majority of the sport’s facets. Each year, more than 150,000 people finish a course offered by the association at one of its 2,200 associated training facilities. These RYA-recognized institutions of higher learning include yacht charter firms, sailing clubs, and travel agencies.
