My name is Adrian Rivett and I run most of the courses and activities I have taught Adults in a variety of settings for over 30 years and am a qualified FE tutor as well as being an RYA Instructor I have worked teaching dinghy sailing as Principal of the Docklands Sailing Centre in its early years as well as power boat instruction.
We are based in South London (living in East Dulwich) and the boat is based in Portsmouth Harbour so most water based activities start and finish there unless stated in our program.
What we’re about.
We have put together a program of courses & activities including racing that enable everyone to have fun and learn and develop skills at reasonable cost. We try to make our prices as inclusive as possible.

Prop-Shaft Repair and refurbishment
For Stainless steel shafts - some time back we found we had wear on our prop-shaft at the P bracket, our first response was to price a replacement shaft the complication was that the new shaft would require some drilling when being fitted and then how long before the replacement shaft would wear?The answer to this was to have the old shaft metal sprayed and reground slightly oversize and a new cutlass bearing made we are now on our 3rd bearing no wear on the shaft.
