The Advanced Powerboat course is aimed at the more experienced powerboat handler. Run over 2 days and a evening (night exercise), the Advanced Powerboat course is designed to teach boat handling, seamanship, pilotage and navigation up to the standards required to drive a planing powerboat safely by day and night in coastal waters.
Operating in the Bristol Channel, we are often operating with a tidal range of over 12 metres - so planning, accuracy and great navigation skills are required. Challenge yourself to the second highest tidal range in the world!
All candidates MUST hold a first aid certificate and VHF SRC certificate. The minimum age is 17.
Candidates should be competent to the standard of the Intermediate Powerboat Certificate with a thorough knowledge of navigation and chart work to the level of the Day Skipper Shore based certificate.
