RYA Powerboating

Spend a weekend at the helm of a RIB and see the island from a different perspective.  Take in the stunning scenery, dramatic coastline and abundance of seabirds and wildlife, whilst enjoying high quality powerboat tuition.

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course introduces the basics of powerboating, boat-handling, safety and seamanship.   

Skills include close-quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, picking up a mooring, anchoring, towing, collision regulations, man overboard recovery and more.  Supporting theory sessions cover pre-launch checks, introduction to chartwork, weather and tidal considerations.

By the end of this course you will be a self-sufficient powerboater in favourable conditions.  Upon successful completion you will receive the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate. No previous experience is required.
