I think what he means is that if you do a 2 day course you would effectively cover the basics (level 1), before doing the second part of the syllabus (level 2), so by doing the 2 day course you cover everything in level 1 anyway.

Have a look at Courses | Learning | Courses & Training | RYA plug in where you live and it will list places offering courses in order of closest first. Each centre should then have a website that contains a course timetable. As previously said do one on tidal waters. If you can do one on on the waters you'll be using most often the instructor should be able to impart some local knowledge.

I did my level 2 course in Essex with the Essex Power Boat School. It was excellent and good value for money. The website is www.essexpowerboatschool.co.uk and a phone contact is 07840 942483

i did my level 2 in a day - simply because i was on my own, and i already knew most of the stuff. i did however learn loads of tips on manouvering etc, and gained lots of local knowledge at the same time. i often see my instructor out at sea and always call him up or go speak to him.

So you done the full course in a day?? RYA would NOT be happy with that !!!
Are you sure you done it as a course and NOT a direct assesment???

yes i did the full course. started early and spent the morning in the classroom, then out at sea til late afternoon and finished off answering questions over a brew back at my caravan. we got through it quicker as i was on my own and so we werent waiting for two other people to have a couple of attempts at everything.
