Oh dear Polwart - not only have you pointed out the elephant in the corner, you have named him Olly!

just do a search for powerboat RYa courses
As others have said the RYA powerboat level 1 and 2 or even advanced courses have nothing to do with racing.

As Dirk says there isn't a lot of racing for RIBs in the UK, although the Superstock series have introduced a RIB class now and that may turn out to be worth entering, but it would be a lot of trouble if you weren't going to carry on with it.
