RYA Powerboat Level 2

Overview

Course
Syllabus

RYA Powerboat Level 2 is a popular entry level course that provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat at speed and in close quarters. It also enables the holder to obtain an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

This two-day course is based at our training facilities in Swanwick Marina, where you will spend most of the first morning. Once out on the water, the busy Hamble River provides ample opportunity to practice close quarters boat handling and we’re minutes away from the central Solent where driving at planing speed and high-speed manoeuvers can be taught in open water. You will also focus on man overboard recovery, and cover the collision regulations as they apply to powerboats.

Powerboat Level 2 is an excellent confidence-builder. Whether you’re planning to do high speed day trips with friends, or simply exploring rivers further upstream with the kids, this course equips you with skills and knowledge needed to be safe and have a good time out on the water in a powerboat.

"I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for a great week aboard Inspire.  I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous about spending the best part of week on board a boat with three people I'd never met, as well as being a bit nervous about some of the tasks as crew on a boat - especially hopping off with the lines!
 
However, Rich did a great job at putting everyone at ease and creating an atmosphere which made the learning interesting and fun.   I feel like a learnt a huge amount and it was beneficial to be on the course with the Day Skipper pupils as I was able to watch... read more"
