As yacht crew, Powerboat courses and PWC courses are important as these qualifications are required by most Captains.

Powerboat courses

Powerboat Handling Level 2

This is a really fun course, a little challenging and very popular especially among boat crew who require the certificate in order to ferry yacht passengers inland from their yachts.

This two-day entry level course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

It focuses on low-speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planing speed and collision regulations. The course can be taken at an inland or a coastal location.

The course content is: Launching and recovery, boat handling, securing to a buoy, anchoring, leaving and coming alongside, man overboard.

Ability after the course: Self-sufficient powerboater in the right conditions, aware of own limitations and those of craft.

Personal Watercraft Proficiency Course

Personal watercraft can be single-seater machines or can take two or three people. They are fast and exciting but need to be handled with care.

Whether you just want to have a go on holiday or buy your own machine, the Personal Watercraft course will teach you how to get the best from it. The course is designed for first time and experienced riders alike. Increasingly the certificate is required for launching in UK harbours but is also needed if you want to use your PW abroad.

Most courses take place over one day and can be taken either on a centre’s craft or your own.

Course content: Launching, handling and recovery skills, passage planning and decision making, high and low speed riding skills, essential safety information, collision avoidance and orientation at sea.

Ability after the course: Self-sufficient in good conditions, aware of limitations of self and craft.

For some freedom and fun out on the water, you should consider Powerboat courses or Jet Ski courses.

RYA Powerboat Level 2 course

If you’re really looking to have some fun at sea, then we highly recommend that you take the Powerboat Level 2 course at one of the RYA training schools on the island. After just 2 days and on successful completion of the course, you will be awarded the Powerboat Level 2 certificate, which means you are legal to drive a powerboat such as a Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB) or any kind of sports boat up to 10m in length.

This is a really fun course, a little challenging and very popular especially among boat crew who require the certificate in order to ferry yacht passengers inland from their yachts. This is an ideal course to take prior to attending a Start Motor Cruising course.

Own Boat Training

The sea schools provide group training sessions (max 3 persons) or if you have your own boat, they will give you one-to-one tuition and training. The course is not all practical and does involve some theory but mostly, it’s all about being out on the water practicing low-speed and close-quarters handling, man overboard recovery and an introduction to basic high-speed drills.

International Certificate of Competence

After the course you should be a self-sufficient power-boater on open planing craft up to 10m in the right conditions, aware of your own limitations and those of the craft. At the end of a successful course, you may also be eligible for an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

Personal Watercraft courses

Also recommended are Personal Watercraft (Jet Ski) proficiency courses, which are 1 day in duration. The syllabus includes handling at both low and high speed, launching and recovery of the Jet Ski, short passage plans with position fixing and essential safety information plus how to avoid collisions and stay safe at sea.
