About Us

Andrew & Frances Phasey

Chief Instructor and Principal, Littlebury Training

Enthusiastic boaters for many years, we have cruised the canals and rivers of England and also the waterways of northern Europe.

We are passionate about water safety, and also about reducing the environmental impact of boating.

Our training narrow boat, Doris Katia, has also navigated tidal waters including the Wash, the Thames Estuary and the Bristol Channel.

“The trainer, Andrew Phasey was brilliant and delivered an informative course with the right amount of delegate involvement, combined with a good amount of humour making for a relaxed learning environment.  I wish all trainers were like him …”

“Many thanks for arranging the water safety training course I attended last week; it was a very good course and perhaps one I should have attended a couple of decades ago or more, definitely an essential course for anyone working near water…..
