Ongoing Training Programme
To provide the highest quality of small craft training in the region.
The training includes pilotage and navigation, engineering and basic Sea Survival, all of which help to educate people who spend time going to sea in powerboats and sailing vessels.
Approximately 12 months
Charity information: Marine Support & Training Service
Many of those who head out to sea in small craft can be unprepared for many of the unforseen circumstances which can arise without warning
There is no across the board method of solving the problems which might arise, so all we can do is to educate and train people to manage as many situations that might occur in a calm, and considered manner.
Our primary aim is to promote Safety at Sea
Activities» We offer a series of comprehensive training courses which are available to all
What success will look like
Success will be... a reduction in maritime small craft related accidents
As a result of our training, some of our members have moved on to gain massive career prospects and are currently serving in the RFA, Royal Navy and RAF
We have the support of many local voluntary sector organisations, and utilise a comprehensive Risk Assessment strategy.
All donors receive a personalised email of thanks, assuming that they do not wish to remain anonymous.
We also publish our occasional magazine 'Scuttlebutt' which has a worldwide email circulation of around 500, and is also available online via our News page at http://www.mstsblyth.org.uk

We are one of very few organisations worldwide which is able to offer and provide our level of training, and of course we are based in Blyth, Northumberland
Our main benefit is to the people of Blyth, as we do not charge our members for their training.
However, in return we expect discipline and commitment from the individuals.
We are able to facilitate this project as we have the necessary experience to make things happen!
