RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course

This RYA powerboat 2 training course is designed for absolute beginners and existing boat users alike. The RYA Powerboat training level 2 qualification is recognised the world over. Holders of the RYA Powerboat training 2 course certificate can also apply directly for an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) without any additional examination or powerboat training enabling them to hire/helm powerboats abroad. In many countries, is all that is required to allow certificate holders to hire powerboats up to 10m. It is also recognised by most insurance companies, leading to lower premiums, and for some is an absolute requirement to gain insurance cover.

The course is taken over a two day period with a short session in our classroom in Island Street and the majority of time afloat in and around Salcombe Harbour.

In this powerboat training course, the emphasis is very much on safe powerboat handling in harbours and out to sea and importantly to enjoy yourself. Time is spent learning the art of mooring, turning in confined spaces, recovering a man overboard and, of course, how to get a powerboat going fast on the plane and keeping it there comfortably. We also include a practical section on navigation at sea.
