Covid-19 Lockdown: Part Deux, Nov '20

Under the guidelines outlined by our government, we will close The OTC Centre from 5th November 2020. We will keep a close eye on the guidance from central government, the RYA, WPNSA and Portland Harbour Authorities and will re-open as soon as it is deemed safe and permissible. We sincerely hope this will be the 2nd December, but will announce the date closer to the time.

In the meantime, our emails and phone lines will be manned from 10:00 to 18:00 each day and our online shop Surf Doctor will operate as usual.

We wish you all the very best; keep safe and look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.





 The Official Test Centre is a watersports school, retailer and test centre located right on the water’s edge, within the grounds of the National Sailing Academy on Portland, Dorset.


Due to our location, we are in the perfect place to get out on the latest kit and give it a go. On this blog we share our thoughts with you. And having tested for magazines for over two decades, we love to put the kit through its paces.
