The letter does not give a specific date
but the implication is that it will be a specific requirement of any RYA Centre Inspection carried out in 2013 for centres wishing to teach Advanced Powerboat courses. All Centre Inspectors will be getting update training in the new year which I believe will be mandatory.
Yes API's must now be commercially endorsed.
Also the RYA has negotiated with the MCA a reduced coding specification for night-time operation for RIBS - OAN 678.
