This 2 day RYA Powerboat practical course is for aspiring skippers who have some experience driving RIBs, and who are proficient on basic navigation and boat handling. This course will teach you new skills, practical navigation and taking control over the boat and your crew during daytime passages.
The course covers the practical use of pilotage and passage planning by day on coastal waters using both traditional and electronic navigational techniques. It teaches you the techniques required to plan and complete a short coastal passage by day.
This course builds on the foundation of the Level 2 course and is suited to those who like to learn driving larger and more powerful powerboats. During the course you will cover cruising at planing speed and more advanced boat handling. It is recommended for anyone considering moving on to the Advanced course.
This course is available as 2 consecutive days.
Amongst other you will learn
How to prepare yourself for this course
In order to get the most out of your course, we offer you the possibility to do our online pre-course knowledge quiz. The quiz helps you to test your knowledge and to assess whether you need more preparation in some areas.
Ability after the course
At the end of the course you will have learned and practiced the skills needed to safely plan and execute longer coastal passages.in familiar tidal waters during day-time under normal conditions.
We recommend attending the RYA Day Skipper shorebased theory course before following the Powerboat Intermediate practical course.
After successfully completing this course, we recommend to first extend your knowledge with our RYA shorebased navigation courses, in particular the RYA Coastal/Yachtmaster Skipper theory course, ideally combined with courses for obtaining your SRC, Sea Survival or First Aid certificate.
After building up experience during daytime passage, it will be time to learn making longer passages both during day-time and night-time, by joining our RYA Powerboat Advanced course.
The instructor is very experienced and the powerboat is just great. This was worth every minute and every euro spent.
I strongly recommend this training centre to anyone considering doing a powerboat course.
