Advanced Powerboat


This is a two day course that really challenges your powerboating abilities. This course covers navigating at planning speed, dealing with rough weather and a high level of boat handling. You will look at the responsibilities of a skipper and the best use of navigational techniques. This course includes a night passage.

What to bring


Participants should bring a packed lunch, you are welcome to use the fridge and microwave at the centre. Alternatively, lunch can be purchased from nearby shops and restaurants.


Hot drinks and water are available from the Centre.


We do have a small safe onsite that can hold phones and car keys, however we suggest leaving expensive valuables at home.

Clothing List

We will provide all specialist equipment such as buoyancy aids, wetsuits and waterproofs.

We advise you bring:

  1. Closed toe footwear
  2. Warm layers would be useful such as a fleece or jumper. It can be much cooler on the water.
  3. Woolly hat / Sun hat
  4. Change of clothes - other than the ones you will wear afloat

Towel, Sun Glasses & security strap, sun screen


Your boat handling skills should be to RYA Intermediate Powerboat level or above. Your theory & navigational knowledge should be to the level of RYA Yachtmaster theory.


Day 1 will run 9:00am - 10:00pm as it will include a night passage. Day 2 will have a later start and will finish at 5:00pm.
