Powerboat training is definatley the place to go.

The training is great I have done both my instructors and my Advanced there. i would hapily do many more courses there without a second thought.

how many other centres get there instructor to pick you up from your hotel when you don't have a car, so you don't have to walk.

cheers

Giles

Thanks for all the replies, Powerboat training seems the place to go in Poole.

However we were thinking of going along the coast to Devon for a change of scenery. Does anyone have any views/info on powerboat schools there?

Graham,
I think you have the schools covered from the the above info (I went to Powerboat training and they were very good).I think your girl friend would do well to get a copy of the new RYA powerboat hand book and read that before going. It will give her a good background and IMHO mean she will get more from the course plus it a good referance book to have about for you and others.

Lots of excellent advice here. If I can add one other thing - once your girlfriend has recovered from her PB2 training, she might find it interesting to do her VHF certificate (assuming you have a radio) so that if you are ever incapacitated she can use the radio with confidence. And you never know, she might love it so much that you are relegated to 'crew' or even just 'land crew', waving her off as she roars away!

Radio course to follow, she has basics of sending Mayday already.

I fully expect her to take equal time at the helm, but hopefully she will take me along.
