RYA Motor Boat Helmsman Course
The RYA Helmsman course is a great starting point for any first time boater or seasoned crew looking to be more helpful on board or a great stepping stone to the RYA Day Skipper course. You will be given an introduction to boat handling, navigation, boat safety as well as engine checks and maintenance. After the 2 day RYA Helmsman course, you will be familiar with life on board a motor boat as well as being a useful crew member.
Do I need previous experience?
No, this 2 day course is aimed at complete beginners. We have found that students gain a lot from having completed the RYA Basic Navigation course prior to attending the course.
Minimum age limit of 12.
What will I learn?
The Helmsman training course will teach you boat handling, including: coming alongside, securing to a mooring buoy, rules of the road, different types of engine drives, hull shapes, seamanship and safety as well as man overboard techniques.
