In 2012 JPMA are celebrating our 15th year in the Superyacht industry.
Hoylake Sailing School was established in 1996, to run RYA shorebased courses, and very shortly afterwards we were approached to run oral preparations for Class 4 oral exams.
We formed JPMA in 1997, to deal solely with the Superyacht sector, and since then we have gone from strength to strength.
We relocated several years later, and we now have 8 training rooms, and run almost all of the modules and oral preparations for Deck (OOW and Master) and Engineering (AEC, MEOL, Y4 to Y1) CoCs.
We have overcome flooding in Golfe Juan, fire in Hoylake, and continue to weather the storm.
Look out for further developments in this, our 15th Anniversary Year!

On 17th December 2010, we moved back into our training centre, 7 months after fire tore through the building.

We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us, and worked to ensure a smooth transition.


Our official opening ceremony took place on 24th January 2011. Councillor John Hale stepped in for Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, who was unfortunately unable to attend the ceremony.
