Milebuilder £120

If you already hold your RYA Powerboat Level 2 (or higher) and are looking to build mileage, gain sea time and get more experience at the helm of one of our Powerboats we are offering 5 hour mile builder sessions – subject to weather we aim to spend around 3.5 to 4 hours afloat. Each session will comprise of a short planning session to understand the route chosen for the day and to cover our safety briefing and will finish with some slow speed handling and a student debrief. We actively encourage students to get involved with the passage planning for each trip and operate the on board electronic chart plotters and equipment.

We aim to maximise the time spent afloat in the channel and the different locations that we will visit – the exact route for each session is dependent on the tides and weather on the day but will cover between 30 and 40 miles afloat. Example routes are:

  • Heading down the Bristol Channel ~ Portishead to Weston-Super-Mare, around the Holm Islands and return, or
  • Heading up the Bristol Channel under the 2 Severn Crossings, up the river to Chepstow and entrance into the River Avon.

Our most popular dates are listed on our booking system – these may be available subject to tides/weather please contact us for more details. Click here for more details.
