RYA Powerboat Level 2 (25th & 26th Nov)

25th - 26 November

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is a two-day entry level course which gives an introduction to powerboating. It provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence (ICC). The majority of the course will be spent driving the club RIBs but students will also get experience in the club Jaffas. This is the minimum course members require to be able to drive the club powerboats in support of club activities.


The Powerboat Level 2 course syllabus is given in detail on the RYA website and in the powerboat logbook (which all students will receive). It includes:

  • Launching and recovery
  • Boat handling under way (slow speed and high speed manoeuvres)
  • Securing to a buoy
  • Anchoring
  • Leaving and coming alongside
  • Man overboard
  • Leaving and returning to pontoons
  • Towing
  • Basic navigation
  • Collision prevention regulations
  • Plenty of theory!

This course is the pre-cursor to the RYA Safety Boat Operator and Intermediate Powerboat courses.


The instructors for this course will be Jennifer Tankard and Nick Jones (both club members and experienced powerboat instructors). The ratio of students to instructors is 3 to 1.


This course has 6 places. Booking and payment is through the club website.


We're taking a gamble on the weather by running a course this late in the year. Hopefully we'll have a lovely, clear weekend. If the weather is terrible then we'll have to cancel (and refund the course fee).
