RYA Intermediate Powerboat Course

RYA Intermediate Powerboat Course

This two-day course follows on from the RYA Level 2 qualification. We will develop your basic driving skills in more complex situations and weather permitting, include an introduction to rough water boat handling. You’ll be introduced to basic navigation and pilotage, as well as planning a day trip. Sessions will also be run on the use of compasses, GPS and VHF radio, personal safety and dealing with emergency situations such as engine failure, fire and recovering someone who has fallen overboard.

Whilst the course does include time on developing your boat handling we will not have time to develop basic techniques. It is recommended that attendees acquire a First Aid certificate and VHF operators certificate before attending the course.

The course also focus’ on navigational exercises, pre-planned in the class room you will have the ability to navigate safely around the coast, understanding weather, tides, pilotage and utilising charts.
