Beginner's Courses?

Are there any good beginner's courses available in or close to Devon that anyone can link me up with?

Hi there

Don't know about Devon specifically. This is a link to the RYA site: http://www.rya.org.uk/Courses/powerboatcourses.htm providing all the details about the courses they recommend.

Reading your previous thread, I would suggest the Powerboat Level 2. This is a two day course, seem to cost between 205 and 300 depending on who you do it with.

The RYA site is infuriating, but it is worth seeing which clubs/associations run the courses in your local area and then check them out directly.

There are loads of instructors on this forum, probably all out on the water at the moment, but they may know of courses running in Devon.

Good luck
