Obviously the syllabus is standard but has anyone got a centre they can recommend, bearing in mind Iíll have to get the ferry to Liverpool, Heysham or Belfast?


Hi At Safer Training Sea School based at New Brighton we offer the RYA Powerboat intermediate & RYA Powerboat Advanced followed by Commercial Endorsement if required.

Try iPowerboat at Ballachulish in Scotland. I did my intermediate with them a few years back, and then subsequently my advanced.

Not only is it a great school with top notch instruction but itís in one of the UKís most beautiful cruising grounds.

You should see the fun you have for Yachtmaster Offshore, courses to steer, loads of secondary ports and blind nav. Oh the joy!

Just to close this off, I ended up doing the Advanced PB at Safe Water at New Brighton at the beginning of April. Good choice for me. Since itís a commercial shipping channel, the Mersey Approaches has just about everything you need in terms of tides, buoyage, hazards and plenty of different vessel types to check your lights knowledge. Having a pilot at the instructor also helped a lot. Definitely worth doing if you want to do night passages.
