What Can I Expect

Learn to how to handle a powerful 90hp RIB at high and low speeds on this course based at Brighton Marina. When you've completed this RYA powerboat level 1 and 2 course, you automatically qualify for the International Certificate of Competence. And that could be your licence to ride the ocean waves and inland waterways if you own a boat, or decide to hire one in the UK or abroad!

The two-day course begins with manoeuvring the RIB in and around the Brighton Marina area to get a feel for the boat, its layout and controls. With up to two other cadets and the instructor, you'll then head out into the Channel for an afternoon of high-speed boat handling, as well as learning procedures such as how to recover a man overboard. Next comes some theory, including passage planning by piloting the RIB to Shoreham-by-Sea, along the coast from Brighton.

On the second day you will do high-speed navigation and handling tuition based around finding yellow racing buoys at sea. The instructor will also take you up the River Adur to practice boat handling and mooring in strong tidal conditions. The course finishes with a lap of honour to demonstrate your new skills.

Over the two days you'll learn all about boating - from the adrenaline of high speed manoeuvres to the satisfaction of bring the boat into a tricky mooring. The school operates both sports boats with inboard engine and RIBs with outboards and you'll be taught by fully qualified RYA instructors who will show you just how fast and agile these powerboats can be.

The RIB, or rigid-inflatable boat, has a rigid hull topped by sturdy inflatable tubes to give an exciting and stable ride. Even if you haven't got your own fancy speedboat, this course is great fun and gives you all the basic teaching you need to be captain and commander of your own launch.

Excellent instruction. Rigorous but sufficiently relaxed to enable the three of us receiving instruction to enjoy the two days whilst still receiving the appropriate level of training.
