Teaching

The course, led by an RYA Powerboat Instructor, will be taught on a maximum Instructor:Student ratio of 1:3, giving you plenty of time at the helm to practice and improve your powerboat driving skills and techniques.

 

You will drive a range of powerboats over the weekend course, including fast wheel-steered centre-console RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats), Tiller Steered 'Jaffas' (Jenneau Rigiflex boats) and one of our higher sided committee boats.

 

The course content includes:

 

  • Launch and Recovery

  • Boat Handling

  • Securing to a Buoy

  • Anchoring

  • Leaving and Coming Alongside

  • Man Overboard

  • Theory


ICC 

If you are interesting in applying for your ICC (for coastal or inland waters) then the RYA Powerboat Level 2 can form the base of the practical assessment. Either of the options require a theory session (coatal waters - coastal theory session, inland waters - CEVNI test).


What to bring

 

Waterproofs and buoyancy aids are provided for course participants. You should wear comfortable clothes suitable for the conditions, warm enough to be on the water for long periods. You should also bring a change of clothes and a towel - you shouldn't end up in the water but being on a boat all day it's always a possibility!

For more information call us on 01784 248881 seven days a week
