Superyacht Training Centre Re-opens After Fire

Following a serious fire in May 2010 which destroyed approximately 25 per cent of their training centre and caused serious smoke damage to the remainder of the building, Hoylake Sailing School Ltd and John Percival Marine Associates have reopened their facilities.
Refurbishment of the building has seen the school increase its training rooms to eight, to allow for the surge in business over the past 12 months.

The boom in business is due mainly to the introduction of the modules for OOW (Yachts), Master (Yachts) and also Chief Engineer (Yachts).
Over the past 12 months the company has employed a further three instructors and also an Accounts and Personnel Manager. Captain John Percival added: “We are recruiting again for both Deck and Engineering Instructors especially those that hold, or have held, an STCW 95 Certificate of Competence.”
