Performance / Race Training
All of these courses are on a one to one or team basis, although you are welcome to book in friends or family who wish to train with you
High performance training
Many of today’s boats can achieve speeds in excess of 60mph, our introductory one day course looks at what to expect from your boat, prop selection, sea conditions and how to drive safely and comfortably at speed. Morning will be classroom based and afternoon on water.
If you don’t yet have a performance boat you can train in our Evolution Rib a boat capable of speeds in excess of 80mph! (Extra cost)
Rough water handling
This course is to enable you to handle your craft in rough waters making it as safe and effective as possible, covering, wave patterns such as beam, following seas etc, and how they will affect your boat in rough water, rough water driving techniques and how to trim your boat to achieve the safest and most comfortable ride.
Powerboats and RHIBS
This is a one day course and is ideal for either novices or more experienced power boaters and a suitable follow on from RYA level 2.
You will learn how to recognise sea conditions, prop choice, rough water handling, understanding your boat and driving techniques.
Ideally you will undertake training in your own boat, but if you don’t have one of your own we can offer a RIB for this training (extra cost). You may wish to book in all the family for this course as it is tailored exclusively around, your own experience and boat type.
