RYA Advanced Powerboating

Hi all,
Does anybody know of a training centre in Northern England or Scotland that is currently running the RYA Advanced Powerboating course. So far most places only run it earlier or later in the year. Need advice, cheers will.

Hi,

Finished my level 2 yesterday in Falmouth. They only run advanced nearer the winter months as they need to do a night cruise (in the dark), and they don't like staying up late. Might be the same up north

Couple of observations here:

- Agree with Jelly regarding have a chat with Dave Mallett
- Regarding cost. Certainly I would agree with the fact that 350 is very excessive. On the south coast prices tend to range from c200 to c275. Do look though at the school and the way they run the course as whilst the course syllabus is the same everywhere the quality & depth of instruction can vary - albeit far less than for level 2. Who will be instructing, what is their experience, what boats are being used etc. Paying a bit more might make sense versus the cheapest course - irrespective of what you pay make sure you get a really good course
- Agree with the observation re the need for dark nights somewhat earlier than 10.30pm but also bear in mind the course also addresses rough water handling and the probability is that the conditions are more likely to be suitable in March & September than July

If you have any questions on the course feel free to drop me a line (paul@powerboattraininguk.co.uk)

re; RYA Advanced Powerboating

Thanks again for all the advice, i'll keep looking in the meantime.
I realise i'm shooting off at a tangent here but how difficult is it to get an MCA Yellow Code for a Pacific 22...not so much the safety gear but structural stuff like height of transom etc.
Cheers Will.

Advanced Courses

Hi ,

We run Advanced courses for around stg 275 off of the Aran Islands on the West Coast of Ireland with the overnight being spent on the Islands.

Generally we only run them in April and Sept Oct in order to balance grtting proper darkness for the night driving module with reasonable weather to avoid cancellations because of weather.

Best wishes,

Stuart
