Blue Lamp Afloat is a small friendly RYA Training Centre based in St Katherine Docks, London, E1. With easy access to the River Thames, what better location to learn power-boating surrounded by some of London’s iconic buildings. We can deliver a wide range of RYA practical and theory courses, designed to meet the individual needs of our customers all from our facilities here in Central London. We can also offer a unique insight into the valuable work of the RNLI through our Team Building event – Team Lifeboat Search and Rescue Experience.
Our Power Boat Courses are run using our 6m Avon Adventure RIB “Skyla” and a former RNLI Atlantic 75 lifeboat,  however we also offer own boat tuition should you so wish.  Blue Lamp’s experienced instructors will ensure your courses are fun, enjoyable and as safe as can be. Our Chief Instructor and Principal is a former RNLI Inshore Lifeboat Trainer with many years of powerboat training under his belt.
The RYA Powerboat Scheme provides a series of practically structured courses which take you from absolute beginner through to being able to make a passage at night.
