Covid-19 - OTC Centre Closed

With the ever-changing landscape we live in at present, we have taken the decision to close the OTC centre from tomorrow, 23rd March ’20. We have to heed the advice that we are presented with, accounting for the safety and well-being of staff, clients and the community we live in.

We will assess developments and announce our reopening when it is deemed socially agreeable to do so.

Our phone lines and emails will be manned throughout, for any watersports-related advice and help required; and our eCom platform Surfdoctor will continue to operate as usual, for all related purchases.

We want to wish you all the very best of health in these uncertain times.

Keep safe.

The OTC Team





 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.
