This is the RYA equivalent of yacht coding to ensure that every trainee has every piece of equipment needed to pass their courses.

Lava Charter knows the importance of refresher courses, that's why we have teamed up with a RYA Training Centers in Marina Lanzarote. They offer a unique opportunity for you to receive tuition on board one of our yachts. Tuition can be for one day of your charter or for the entire duration.
