Testimonials

  • “When it comes to Offshore Safety the team at TMS are very passionate, professional and experienced in what they do, from nurturing a family’s safety knowledge to go cruising, up to organisations like Clipper Ventures who are preparing for serious ocean racing. I’ve been proud to be associated with them for a number of years”.

  • “The RYA Sea Survival course run by TMS is one of the best run courses I’ve experienced. It was informative, well presented and engaging whilst also being relaxed and friendly for all. From the absolute novice sailors to the couple of us there who’d raced for a long time and were refreshing our knowledge and qualifications, everyone learnt valuable skills to take away but hopefully never have to use in a real life emergency. The pool session was fun and plenty of safety cover made everyone feel comfortable in the pool and liferaft. A must have qualification for anyone looking to go sailing beyond the relative safety of inshore waters, run by an excellent instructor and school”.

  • “I have been a professional mariner for thirty years with the Royal Navy, the Merchant Navy and as Yachtmaster.  When the Royal Ocean Racing Club required some additional courses to be eligible to compete in the Rolex Fastnet Race, TMS were not only able to the provide the training but with recognised and respected experts in their fields.”

  • In preparation for the Fastnet Offshore Race, sea survival training for your crew is essential as well as mandatory. As skipper TMS was recommended to me because of its instructor’s enormous and fascinating practical experiences, not simply its academic RYA accreditation. Real life experiences are more valuable than PowerPoint slides and TMS certainly offers this & more. The training was intuitive, educational, fun and look forward to putting my next crew through TMS training, thank you TMS.

  • There are many sea survival schools to choose from, but the ‘value add’ with real experiences and extensive ‘hands on’ knowledge, for me, sets TMS apart from the others. I highly recommend TMS & will continue to put my students through TMS training.

  • The TMS Sea Survival & First Aid training was fascinating and has given me the confidence to safely plan longer passages than ever before. I highly recommend them!
