This two-day course provides the skills required when acting as an escort craft, safety boat or coach boat for a fleet of dinghies, windsurfers or canoes, or for racing or training activities.


Powerboat courses are normally held on weekends.

All of our Powerboat Courses courses are based on the RYA syllabus with fully trained RYA Instructors in our fleet of Ribs and Fun-yaks up to 6.5m.

Please note that there are only 3 spaces per instructor and so spaces are very limited. The BYC office will respond as soon as possible to let you know whether there is space on the course. Please email if the course you wish to do is full up. The RYA Safety Boat course is open to all persons over the age of 16 who also hold a RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate.
