Tom is now able to offer RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman Certificate courses, one or two day, boat supplied or own boat. 

This service is offered by Tom via Tillerfolk School of Boating, based in Worcester and established as a RYA training school in 1996. Courses from the centre begin on the canal, feature narrow locks, barge locks, winding holes, and of course can continue on to the River Severn if desired (and depending on flood state and confidence!). Own boat training is equally as rewarding as you get to spend time getting to know your boat in comfort - we can travel to your mooring location and deliver a high-quality bespoke training course tailored to meet your requirements. 

Costs and contacts for booking training are available direct from Bob Strachan at Tillerfolk - please visit to find out more
