Course Outline

RYA Powerboat Level II Course

To teach boat handling and seamanship in powerboats.

Course Overview:

An RYA powerboat training course means you get the best of both worlds – your chance to drive someone else’s boat and the opportunity to gain the experience and knowledge to be safe afloat.  More importantly thought, you will come away with an understanding of how boats work, the equipment you will need, in addition to the type, style and design features that you would want on your boat should you decided to purchase one.
