Well done - who's been a busy bee

Any feedback about your experience, the relative value or learning from all these courses?

You would be a perfect candidate to become a Powerboat Instructor

Have you done your Professional Practices and Responsibilities (PPR) course?

Hi Ribochet
PPR is 3rd on my list above.
I’ve been a volunteer for Powerboat and Sailing races for the last 20 years with some basic qualifications.
PB2, Safety Boat, First Aid, VHF plus diving course with BSAC
Having retired a couple of years ago and completing most of the jobs at home, it was time to go and donate some money to the RYA to keep the grey matter active. I’m not sure that going down the instructor route is a direction that interests me currently, but it would be nice to be paid for the odd few days to take a few people out in charter Rib.
