If you are looking to undertake more adventurous powerboat trips by day and night then the RYA Advanced Powerboat Course is for you. This 2 day course includes navigation at planing speed by day and night, weather and other aspects of skippering powerboats on more challenging passages in coastal waters. Anybody undertaking this course must have the practical skills of the Intermediate course and knowledge of navigation to a minimum of the standard of the Day Skipper shorebased course ideally you will already have completed the RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachmaster Theory course.
If you have recently passed your Level 2 or are feeling a bit rusty we have 2 options for you to improve your skills. We offer Slow speed handling sessions to get to grips with parking the boat in different configurations and for those who are looking for more miles we have our new mile builder sessions. From £60 to £120 we can suit all budgets.
We had 6 students this weekend all looking to master the art of driving one of our 6.5m Powerboats at both high and slow speeds, and learning the skills required to be a good and safe skipper. Students started in the classroom with an introduction to personal and vessel safety equipment -an opportunity to see our wide range of clothing from simple spray suits, flotation suits and dry suits, to examine a life jacket and safely practice with our dummy flares and EPIRBS.
