Read what some of our past attendees have to say;

“The knowledge I gained throughout the 2019 four week Woman On Water course has been invaluable & I have loved putting into practice the skills learned. Dean & his amazing team were all so patient, & they gave us the confidence to drive the boats, read radars navigation systems & comfortably dock the boats. The biggest bonus was doing the course with such a great team of women & having so many laughs along the way!”

Anna Barker – Riviera 48 Flybridge Gamekeeper

“Women on Water was an absolute blast!! Better than I could have imagined. If you want to learn some practical skills in a non-threatening, non-judgemental, fun & inclusive environment then this is the course for you! No question too dumb! Boys willing to show you & guide you a thousand times until you get the knot right! I couldn’t recommend it more. I came out with fantastic practical knowledge & so much more confidence on the boat!”

Shelley Tetro – Riviera 51 Flybridge Sabra

“Even though my husband talked me into doing the Women on Water course I was totally hooked in the first hour of the first session. Dean and the team were amazing hosts both on and off the water…not to mention patient. The champagne and cheeseboards assisted greatly in keeping us focused….well short term anyway.
We had fun on the water too whilst learning from complete professionals. It was such a pleasure to meet all the other Riviera boat chicks. I am no longer freaked out by the thought of being on the boat by myself if my husband ducks off for a swim or onto the wharf.
I would highly recommend the course to any other Riviera ladies. The information you will gather in a matter of hours over 4 sessions will be priceless. I’m already looking forward to Level 2!”

“Thanks to all at R Marine Flagship for putting on the WOW course – it’s been fantastic timing for me as I get back into boating after 23 years. I know I would have let my husband do all the driving and communications – but not now! Over the last couple of months I’ve enjoyed driving the boat and berthing with confidence. I have a much better understanding of all aspects of being out on the water thanks to the course which was so much fun learning from the team at R Marine Flagship nd the other women boaties.”
