Powerboat course for children in Solent

Does anyone have any suggestions for a suitable trainer /company for my just 13 year old
Ideally would like to utilise my own boat, which is in the Solent and would like to end up at PB2 for child

Stormforce did an own boat course for us, including daughter who was under 18 at the time. Great fun and great for confidence building.
