Powerboat courses

RYA LogoDriving a powerboat




Level 1 is a one day introduction to simple motorboating enabling the beginner to get a real feeling for handling the boat.

Level 2 is a two day course and and provides all the skills and knowledge needed to be a competent and safe powerboat driver. Providing your boat is properly equipped we are happy to use it to do the course, alternatively you can use our Sea Nymph, which is fast, fun and easy to drive.

RYA Safety Boat Course introduces the techniques used in powerboats escorting racing fleets of dinghies and windsurfers, providing safety and rescue cover for training fleets and assisting in race management.

Not sure if it’s for you?   Try one of our our taster sessions.

All our activities are booked to order – we have no pre-organised times – so if you are interested in any of these courses contact us with your preferred dates and we will look at the tide tables and see what can be arranged.
