Level 1 - £155pp

This is a one-day course designed for complete beginners to the Powerboating world. It is an introduction to boating techniques for everyday boat handling and the use of safety equipment. In the Bristol Harbour or Portishead Marina, you will get to grips with manoeuvring a powerboat up to 10 meters in the daylight. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to assist onboard a powerboat and drive under supervision.
 

Level 2 - £295pp

The perfect 2 day course for young adults to gain experience in Powerboating! This is 2 day course, designed for young adults between the ages of 12-16 years old, who wish to learn how to safely and confidently drive a powerboat in the Bristol Historic floating harbour or the vibrant marina at Portishead. The course begins by covering the theory on board a powerboat, including preparation of the rib and crew and safety on board. We then head out onto the water, where the students will practice slow speed manoeuvring.

This gives the students the opportunity to practice mooring at the many pontoons and landings. The second day expands on their manoeuvring skills and building confidence with safety training including “Man Overboard Drills” using a dummy. By the end of the course, candidates will be presented with a RYA Level 2 Powerboat certificate, which will enable them to drive any motor driven vessel up to 10 meters in length, in daylight conditions.
