not 100% sure if this is what your looking for but neil holmes dos a range of Racing training courses which maybe as close as you will get, he is also RYA affiliated Welcome to The Neil Holmes Powerboat Training Academy - Southampton - Hampshire - UK I havent done anything with him so i cant comment on how good or bad it is.

problem is how you ensure rough weather for the dates you are booking your course?

Have a look here: Rough Water RIB Course

I have to ask though - are you not mostly driving ribs in relatively sheltered sea loughs or inland waters? (presumably NI-EA don't need to go out in open seas very often?). Presumably in really bad conditions sampling is difficult and the prudent decision is to stay on land? If I followed your other discussion you are already trained to APB level, and using some pretty serious boats. Do you really need more training?

RIBase
If it's rough you want, Red Bay Powerboating do a Rough Water Course, dunno about fast though

Charles keeps a decent supply of rough water on hand just round the corner at Rathlin for these courses. He has to turn it off when Tom is going to Ardbeg though. Tom likes Special Water for that.....

Thanks guys, Charles from red bay has done some training with in past so i must give him a shout ! Also it would surprise you how rough those sheltered sea loughs can get, especially if you have a strong southerly wind against tide in Strangford Lough or even around Rathlin ! I believe you can never have enough training, but its always safety first !!!
