View all of our Powerboat Courses throughout the year on the calendar below.
Click on the event to find more information about each course and you can also enrol on-line.
Powerboat courses are normally held on weekends or occasionally as a series of evening sessions.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if the course you wish to do is full up.
What to bring:
- Notebook and pen
- Your RYA “Start Powerboating” Book
- Oilskins or wetsuits…n.b. in rough weather you can get waves coming over your head!
- Your own lifejacket or buoyancy aid from BYC
- A passport sized photograph of yourself
- Pack lunch and a hot drink
You can be sent your RYA Start Powerboating Book to do some pre-course study. Please contact email@example.com if you have a course coming up but haven’t received this yet. Also watch this video below:
