PBL2 for a 13yr old

Hi,

Looking for somewhere for our 13yr old son to do PBL2, ideally in Poole so we can organise to stay at the RNLI college whilst down there.

He's very comfortable on the water as he spends a lot of time with me out on the water but I don't let him take the helm a great deal!

Slight query is I'd like to sit in on the course as I need some hours to re-validate my PLI certificate.

Can anyone accommodate us ideally during weekdays in March?

Please PM or call on 01239 623558.

Thanks,

Tony

Seconded - I can highly recommend Paul and his team at Powerboat Training UK based at Cobbs Quay (Power Boat Courses | RYA Training & Courses, Poole, Lymington-Solent | Powerboat Training UK) - give the office a call and I'm sure Viv will sort something out.

Thirded - Paul Glatzel. Pretty much the best training you'll get in Poole!

Thanks for the recommendations. I left a message at Paul's place yesterday so hopefully will get something booked today.

Thanks again.

Tony

I don't doubt that given Paul's pedigree anyone going there can expect a good experience. However I am always sceptical of claims someone is the best instructor (boat, first aid, car, climbing, windsurfing etc) afterall how many PB2 courses can you have been on? And even people who have been to loads of different courses from different suppliers, have not been as a total beginner (or in this case a 13yr old) to all of them. And then we all learn in different ways...

I have posted before about the different style of training you can expect from a specialist school, a big outdoor centre and a sailing club. I'd suggest that training for children is a special category in itself. I'm sure Paul will understand those special challenges.

I can't vouch for Paul's instruction techniques, but I've tried his tea and it's "by the book". Bear in mind P., that he actually wrote the book as well.



Oh yeah, someone out there thought enough of him to ship him down to Antarctica to assess the boat teams in Rothera. He wasn't half surprised to discover that donegaldan had got there before him....
