Hello and welcome to Captain Corbett’s Adventures…






My name is Richard Corbett and the reason I am posting these ‘ short stories’ is so that you too can share the excitement of being out on the water on a regular basis.

My boating isn’t ‘ordinary’ by any stretch of the imagination, as this is how I make my living but  nevertheless most of you reading this will understand the feeling you get when skimming across the waves in a powerful motor cruiser and therefore you’ll have a good idea of what I’m experiencing as I test, deliver and handover boats.

I will be posting all my adventures and also the skipper’s tips I’ve compiled over the years.

Please feel free to comment and of course, if you have some adventures of your own that you think would be interesting I’d love to hear them too.

I really hope you enjoy reading about what I get up to and if you don’t, then that can be our little secret…

Captain Corbett

This has been another Captain Corbett’s Adventure.  If I’m not on Jersey teaching a private tuition Day Skipper theory or Yachtmaster theory course, then I’m either spending time with someone on their boat, giving them the confidence to take their boat out with their family and friends on board or I’m off somewhere exotic delivering a boat. Either way, I’ll write it up and put it on the Blog for you all to see, so keep popping back to see my most recent adventure.

  1. Hi Richard
    Good to talk to you yesterday, couldn’t believe you were out in such windy/rough conditions (or was that the whole idea of the shoot??). Couldn’t identify the boat, but wondered if it was the new F37.
    We were on a day out with some chaps whos wives (Karen included) were away for the weekend. The skipper (luckily) is hugely experienced, and none of us suffer from seasickness!!
    My “yachtie” friend was very impressed with the way your craft seemed to be handling the rough conditions!
    We are good friends with Helen and Gary Watts, so heard about how you got them up to speed on their new toy!! (lucky devils).
    Hope all good with you,
    Best wishes
    Howard (Deck)
    PS Love the account of your Channel Island trip.


    1. Hi Howard

      It was good to talk with you too and good to hear you’ve been back out on the water.

      That was the F48 you saw us on. It was really windy in the Solent but thankfully the F48 made light work of the waves and we managed to get the shots we wanted.

      Gary and Helen were a scream, such lovely people. Apart from when Gary made me wear that hat!!!

      I’ll give you a shout when the F37 is launched and you can come and have a test drive.

      Until then, all the best to you both.
