New to sea

Collected a zodiac futura today (mk 2,open deck)
Yamaha 25hp 2 stroke

Ive had a honwave T30 + 9,9hp

Bayliner 185 bow rider

Only ever used them on Windermere, the bayliner was used once in abersoch with a mate ( his boat previously)

As I'm new to going out into the sea, I'm looking for tips, advice, etc
First time in sea will possibly be Anglesey in a couple of weeks

You should book onto the cruise around Anglesey on 28 April. Over 30 RIBs have confirmed . A hog roast is booked for the evening. :-)

Hi, sounds a good idea to go out on the sea in a group, I too use mine on Windermere going again in Aug, im also looking forward to my first outing in a group to the isle of wight on the 7th april. join us if your free!

my top tip would be power boat 2 course and vhf course unless you have already done them! well worth the money. .....happy boating

You can do the RYA 2 here:

Liverpool SC


They have a fantastic facility. Also if you join the club (very reasonable membership fees) you can launch onto the River Mersey anytime you want to.

I would highly recommend that you and your crew consider attending a RYA Powerboat Level 2 course - no need to do Level 1 beforehand. The following link will give you more details

Level 2 | Powerboat | Courses | Learning | Courses & Training | RYA

The next link may help you find a centre close to you or other Ribnetters may be able to recommend a Centre from "local knowledge".

Find A Training Centre | Learning | Courses & Training | RYA

I would also recommend that you talk to a RNLI Sea Safety Advisor who will be only be too glad to chat to you and give you free and impartial advise in respect to any questions that you may have concerning safety. This link will help you organise a free SEA Check where ever you live.

Book a SEA check

Also for those going out to sea, the RNLI's top sea safety tips are:
  1. Wear a lifejacket
  2. Get relevant training
  3. Carry a means of calling for help
  4. Check engine and fuel
  5. Tell others where you are going
  6. Check weather and tides.
If you require any other information do not hestitate to PM me.

Always remember:

I'm going to Windermere next weekend (weather permitting)....... My first trip on this boat

Isle of wight sounds good, but echoing what you and Natalie both advise maybe I should get some basic training ASAP :-)
