We have many years of experience teaching children the RYA Powerboat Level 1 and Level 2 courses. We run dedicated childrens only courses during the summer and easter holidays in addition to some half terms.

Children's Powerboat Courses

We also can run dedicated children’s courses on your own boat at any time subject to there being at least two children and the boat being suitable for the training.

The new Start Motor Cruising scheme for children is very similar to the Level 1 course and great for families undertaking training on a motor cruiser.

Children’s Powerboat Level 1

Duration: 1 day

We welcome children aged 8 upwards on to our dedicated children’s Level 1 courses.  Courses run usually in the easter  and summer holidays and during half terms when it is warm (ish).

Helmsman – on our boats

Duration: 2 days

A great  2 day course to introduce you to motor cruising and undertaking short inshore trips such as through a harbour or down river to the local beach. Time is focussed on developing the core slow speed handling skills and good ‘seamanship’ skills.

Start Motor Cruising

Duration: 1 - 2 days

Start Motor Cruising is a new course aimed at those seeking a day afloat to get a feel for boating on a motor cruiser or for those keen for children to learn how to be an effective crew member.
