A two day weekend course covering manoeuvres at high and low speed in a variety of craft, enabling you to operate a powerboat safely and with confidence. You'll have the chance to try out both diesel and petrol engines as well as a more powerful craft, which is brought in especially for the course. Full safety precautions are observed and participants are responsible for the preparation and storage of the powerboats used to make them fully sufficient.
