This advanced powerboat training course provides you with the skills and background knowledge to operate safely in more demanding coastal waters. The weekend focuses on boat handling, seamanship, pilotage and navigation up to the standards required to handle a powerboat safely in rough conditions or in darkness.
The course assumes you can handle a powerboat very well as it is about developing your skills rather than starting them! It also assumes you understand navigation to the level of Yachtmaster/Coastal Skipper Theory (although you don’t actually need the qualification). We would always suggest that we have a chat with you about your experience before you book the course to ensure that this is the best course for you
Assumed knowledge: You should already hold the Powerboat Intermediate award, with a knowledge of navigation and chartwork to RYA Yachtmaster standard. In addition, it’s strongly recommended that you hold a first aid certificate and radio operator’s licence.
Cost £375 Duration 2 Days
