In one way, shape or form Viv and I here at Powerboat Training UK/Aquasafe have been running businesses for over 30 years. In 2001 I stood in an office in London watching the shocking events in America unfold and then we fought through the highly challenging market that followed. A few years later we experienced the terrible events of 7/7 literally a stones throw from our offices and then in 2008, now running PTUK, we again fought through highly challenging market conditions to emerge the other side as a more robust and resilient business. None of these events in any way compare to the challenges the present terrible situation facing our country and our world is experiencing. Businesses in all sectors are facing an uncertain future and are having to adapt minute by minute to changing rules and procedures. The purpose of this post is that we wanted to take this opportunity to communicate what we are doing.

The most important thing is the safety of you – our customers, our friends, our instructors and all of their and our families. We are obviously paying close attention to what the Government and Royal Yachting Association is advising businesses and individuals to do and will abide by their recommendations so to this end classroom/afloat courses are presently suspended. Online courses are of course still running.

Thanks, Paul, Viv and the PTUK/Aquasafe Team
