RYA Powerboat Courses

From time to time the club will arrange RYA Power Boat Level 2 courses and these can be run for between two and six trainees.  If you want a RYA PBL2 course because of your involvement in another water sport we can tailor the course to your activity providing we cover the core PBL2 curriculum set down by the RYA so please contact our Training Principal and we will try to accommodate your requirements.

Courses are usually run over a weekend: Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 5.00pm but can be run at other times by arrangement.

More information is available from the RYA website. Please use the following links:
