    RYA Powerboat Level 2

    The course provides the skills and background knowledge needed by the competent powerboat driver and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. It aims to teach boat handling and seamanship in powerboats. It focuses on low speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planing speed, and collision regulations.

    Please be aware this course requires a minimum of 2 people to run.

    A passport sized photo for your certificate is required!

    Minimum Age:

    The minimum age for this course is 12 years old.

    Anyone aged 12 to 16 must have a responsible adult aged over 18 attend the course with them. Anyone aged 17 must have a responsible adult aged over 18 on site throughout the course.

    Safety is our number one priority. In the event of poor weather conditions (e.g. strong winds or thunder and lightning) or other incidents we reserve the right to restrict water access to particular user groups, restrict the area available for activities, cancel sessions or close the lake. We will endeavour to give advance notice whenever possible; however sometimes decisions need to be made at short notice. If we close the lake, we will add a message to our website and endeavour to contact all customers impacted to offer the opportunity to reschedule their session or receive a refund.
