Jet ski question

If you want to run jet ski "experiences", would it be acceptable (providing you are an RYA training centre for PWCs) to run the "experience" in the form of a lesson towards the PWC certificate of competence, in order for the ski to be coded (or rather not coded under the RYA exception)?

Theres a place in Plymouth that does it this way.

Tim, If is genuinely part of a course no problem but If what you asking is can you sell the experience as a stand alone product and say it is part of a bigger course in order to avoid complying with legislation then I think you would be on pretty thin ice. There are centers before who have attracted the MCA's attention by classing their corporate entertainment/stag/hen do's and adrenaline rides on board powerboats and keelboats as RYA training when quite clearly they were not running RYA training.

That said the code does not cover PWC (although it will do at some point) but it does provide advice for local authority licensing schemes. I would say you need to talk to your Harbour Master because you will come under his ruling.

Thanks for that Doug. I thought that is someone would say! Local area coding is very easy through the Portsmouth Port Authority. I'm pretty sure you can't code a vessel with a petrol inboard though....
