RYA Safety Boat Course

This Course is open to club members aged 16 years or over, holding the RYA Powerboat Level 2 Certificate for a minimum of 12 months.

This two-day course, taking place over the weekend of the 23rd/24th March teaches 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 and training activities.  It also includes rescue techniques and elements of race management and mark laying.

Candidates for the Safety Boat (SB) course will need to demonstrate their Level 2 slow-speed manoeuvring skills prior to the training commencing.  To enable this, candidates are required to attend the 'Powerboat Level 2 Refresher' being held on Saturday, 23rd February.  This is an informal session using RIBs and displacement craft to practise manoeuvres and update on any changes.  It also provides an opportunity to meet the SB Course Instructors. 

The cost of this course is £35.

N.B.  When registering for the Safety Boat Course please ensure that you also register for the 'Refresher session'.
