If you encountered an emergency at sea would you know how to call for help? The Marine VHF Radio is an important piece of safety equipment onboard, understanding the correct procedures when operating the VHF Radio is vital and could save you or your crews’ lives.

” Prepare for the worst and hope for the best”

Learn all the Marine VHF Radio procedures and practice using the inbuilt digital selective calling marine radio simulator.  These courses are run in conjunction with seavoice training.

The discount to any LCC member is £15 off the normal course price of £90     Here is the voucher code LCC15 that members can use if they book directly on to a classroom-based VHF Radio course.   The Exam fee is always £60 which is paid directly to the RYA and not us.

Fundamentally this course is designed for all paddlers irrespective of craft. The objective is to teach simple and safe skills that can be applied appropriately.

Surf Ski in Tarifa by Julian Todd and Becka Lawson.

Just some pics from two weeks ago with Becka on a trip to Spain (by train) for lessons at

It’s a totally different paddling technique, which makes it interesting. We don’t have room, money or capacity to buy these surfskis on top of everything else, but if anyone can let us out to play for a day on theirs on a session we could pass on everything that we learnt (which was included in 2hrs of classroom lessons a day in Tarifa).

Hilbre Island – Sunday 18th February by Anthony Vaccaro

20 + paddlers made the trip today including Gareth’s Improvers group.   A good turn out after the poor weather recently luckily the weather was better than most of us expected today.

Light to moderate breeze, dry ,sunny intervals.  All coped well.

No Tide race or overfalls to play in this time and only one seal bothered to greet us on the end of Hilbre Island.

Unfortunately, due to an injury Mark Pawley had to sit out the paddle.   Fortunately for the rest of us, Mark kindly made Lots of tea and coffee in his paddle bus for anyone who wanted it on our return.

Thanks Mark and all for a good paddle.
