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).

​Courses are held on our Highfield 6m RIBs, (new 2020 & 2021).

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.
