Introduction to the course:
The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is designed to give students an understanding of Power Boating under the guidance of an experienced RYA qualified instructor. This two day course focuses on developing your boat handling, safety and navigation skills. It is the perfect course for complete beginners that will prepare you to take out a powerboat by yourself as well as seasoned power boaters looking to consolidate their experience with the principles of the RYA scheme.
Do I need previous experience?
No this course is suitable for all students.
Students under 16 will have their certificates endorsed as follows: “To be under supervision of a responsible adult”.
What will I Learn?
The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course will teach you boat handling including – anchoring, securing to a mooring buoy, turning in confined spaces, coming alongside, man overboard techniques, knowledge of equipment, towing, high speed manoeuvres, rules of the road and pilotage and passage planning.
Outline Course Itinerary:
Your first day will begin with a full safety brief and introduction to the boat, our 6.8m rib craft boat, powered by a 2 litre Suzuki 175hp four stroke engine capable of 40 knots. You will then have time to familiarise yourself with the boat’s controls and the river environment before we start practising different manoeuvres. This will all be done in and around local marinas, making it as real life as possible for when you decide to start boating solo. You will stop for lunch to cement your new found skills before we take back to the water for more slow speed manoeuvres.
The second day will start with a theory session before departing down the river for more manoeuvring, lunch and the experience of taking in a sea lock! The second day will finish up with some high speed manoeuvres and man over board techniques before we depart back to Saxon Wharf for course debriefing and certificates.
