Powerboat Courses


RYA Powerboat Level 1 and 2 courses provide the skills and background knowledge to become a powerboat driver on inland water.


The Level 1 course includes boating safety, boat handling and basic theory. It can be taken as a standalone course or integrated into the level 2 course.


The Level 2 course includes more practice at manoeuvres such as picking up a mooring, anchoring and man overboard recovery. It introduces navigation, pilotage and engine maintenance.


Advanced Level Course includes navigation at planing speed, weather and other aspects of skippering powerboats on more challenging passages in coastal waters.


Safety Boat Courses
