What is the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course?
This two day Powerboat Level 2 course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence.
The course aims at providing an introduction to power boating with the course covering a much wider range of topics than the level 1 course.
There are no pre-requisites for the course so it aims to provide a good, broad base of experience for anyone who wants to take a powerboat out on their own.
As with all of our courses the days will be mainly practical and hands on to give you the best experience, skills and confidence in the handling of powerboats.
The Powerboat Level 2 course includes close quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, man overboard recovery and collision regulations. The course can be taken inland or on the coast and your certificate will be endorsed accordingly. Launching and recovery, boat handling, securing to a buoy, anchoring, leaving and coming alongside, man overboard.
