RYA Safety Boat is a two day course focused on using power boats as rescue craft. It’s assumed you are already a good boat driver (you have completed the RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course.) Now that you are in good control of your powerboat, this course is about using your boat handling skills in new situations. Across the two days you will learn to rescue single and double handed dinghies, multihulls, paddle craft, and windsurfers, completing as many practical rescues as we can squeeze in and learning different techniques for rescuing other craft like kite surfers, rowing boats, and high performance dinghies. You’ll also learn in more depth about things like search patterns, VHF radios, race management. This is a great course for learning to use powerboats in new ways. Cost for the weekend is £175.
Upcoming dates: Sat/Sun 20th-21st Apr (3 spaces); Sat/Sun 4th-5th May (6 spaces).
