I'm also looking to get a one-on-one day with an EXPERIENCED RYA accredited rib handler/instructor because although I'm a commercially-endorsed Yachtmaster, power and sail (Instructor for sail) with approx 40k miles under my keel and three solo Atlantic crossings in yachts, I have never had any professional instruction in RIBs. I don't need the piece of paper, just some time on the water with an experienced, accredited RIB handler in order to maximise my understanding and enjoyment going forward.
I know the colregs, passage planning, have the radio licence, etc, etc, have skippered 18m twin 1200hp jet-driven 50 knot powerboats and had some 'fun' driving RIBs over the past 20 years but 90% of the membership on here probably have more dedicated time under their belt in RIBs than I do.
I couldn't give a toss about a piece of paper and realise I'm probably an 'unusual' candidate for whom (say) the Powerboat Level 2 course would not be suitable, but I'd certainly value the time spent with an experienced instructor out on the water 'handling' a powerful RIB in a chop in order to learn 'best practice' first hand.
So, any RYA accredited, experienced, RIB instructors in the North Wales area interested in tailoring something for what I believe the powerboat brigade generally term a 'WAFI', looking to cross over to the dark side, PM me your details
