Good afternoon Mike,
Go to www.mcga.gov.uk
This is the British equivalent of the USCG. Also try contacting Warsash marine college England. Both will be able to point you in the right direction.
Warsash is also the home of people who really go sailing. So is Hamble.
Hamble and Warsash are on the south coast of England adjacent to the Isle of Wight and Cowes. Major yachting and sailing areas.
