Last year both Nicola and I did barge handling courses at Bisham Abbey – in fact I enjoyed it so much I did it twice, gaining my ICC and CEVNI qualifications aboard their barge Le Coq.
Le Coq – training Barge at Bisham Abbey
A couple of weeks ago I added to my nautical CV with a Diesel maintenance course and a VHF course, also taken at Bisham.
This really is a first class facility on the Thames and a perfect environment with knowledgeable, patient instructors. Highly recommended.
