RYA Powerboating

We offer the RYA Level 1 & 2 Powerboat course, which is a two-day course covering the basics of powerboating, boat-handling and seamanship.  Courses are designed to increase knowledge and experience and will leave students confident to handle small boats in tidal waters.  No previous experience is required.  The course includes close-quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, picking up a mooring, anchoring, towing, collision regulations and man overboard recovery.  Supporting theory sessions cover pre-launch checks, weather and tidal considerations, basic chartwork and GPS use.

By the end of this course you will be a self-sufficient powerboater in favourable conditions.  Upon successful completion you will receive the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate.
