Get out on the water safely this summer by completing a RYA powerboat course. Powerboat courses will provide you with the necessary skills to operate on the water safely.
Even if you have no powerboating experience we would always recommend starting with the powerboat level 2 course. Details are below.
RYA Powerboat Level 2 looks at launching and recovery, boat handling, securing to a buoy, anchoring, leaving and coming alongside, man overboard and other techniques to get out on the water safely.
The PBL2 course is an essential course for anyone working on the water, and is a prerequisite for many marine qualifications.
This course will provide you with the skills required to provide support to others on the water.
Preparation, boat handling, dinghy rescue, windsurfer rescue, kayak or canoe rescue (can be covered as theory), towing, end-of-day procedures, safety, suitability of craft, local factors, communication, rescuing other water users will be covered on the course.
Get a private instructor for either you, your child or maybe your whole family. This can be for a guided outing on the water or more specific training around topics that you request. Get in contact to discuss exactly what you would like.
