Examination Preparation




Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. We hope that it will be able to offer you something and answer any questions that you may have about courses offered and going to sea in general.



Qualifications Offered

We are able to offer all shorebased Royal Yachting Association courses and qualifications.  We specialise in practical Yachtmaster Examination preparations during the spring, summer and autumn months either in small groups or on your own boat.



Services Available

We are able to offer help and guidance from a wealth of personal experience. When buying a new sailing boat or motor cruiser or if you are having a boat delivered we can provide assistance. We deliver all types of boats to all areas. We can provide familiarisation to new boating areas in the UK and abroad as well as tuition and qualifications. We have knowledge of a wide range of boating locations but particularly the Solent, West Country, Channel Islands and the Balearics, Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza.



About West Midlands Maritime

Our full time professional instructors have many thousands of miles and many years of experience on pleasure and commercial sail and power driven vessels and, yes, they are based and do live in the Midlands taking advantage of the confluence of motorways and the splendid Birmingham International Airport. They combine both leisure yachting and commercial maritime experience. They are professional seamen with qualifications to match, who instruct and deliver at sea mainly in the summer period and who concentrate on shorebased tuition in the autumn and spring.



Why Choose West Midlands Maritime?

Midland Maritime can offer all shorebased RYA/MCA courses at a convenient location near the confluence of the UKs major road, rail and air networks. Midland Maritime at Hagley is an ideal location for quiet study whilst being central for easy access from the whole Midlands area using the A456 and the motorway network (M5, M6, M42 and M40). Accomodation for students and their families can be offered if required.



The wide range of subjects available

We are able to offer all shorebased Royal Yachting Association courses and qualifications.



Expertise in shorebased and practical tuition

Midland Maritime has been delivering tuition for many years and have developed an expertise in both types of tuition. We can also deliver boats.



Excellent Tutorial Care

We have been able over the years to build up a business that relies upon word of mouth and repeat business. Our next assignment is only ever as good as the last. This is our

quality assurance. We really are large enough to cope but small enough to really care. We can offer unparalled personal tuition and individual attention.



Personal Service

Because we pride ourselves on being a small school providing very personal service we can tailor make courses to suit you and your needs.



If you are interested in anything on offer or if you would like to suggest any trips for the forthcoming season. We can normally provide boats in most parts of the country. As the season progresses we are able to offer different items as they present themselves so never hesitate to telephone to see what is happening. As far as training or holiday weekends go then if you get in touch we will try to organise to suit.
