This 2 day course teaches the necessary skills to drive a powerboat in daylight and coastal waters. Ability to Power Boat Level 1 is assumed. It offers eligibility for the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) coastal for power up to 10m.
You will learn many boat handling skills including close quarter handling, man overboard recovery, picking up a mooring buoy, high speed manoeuvres, anchoring and control of the boat in a sea. Some theory is also taught but it is assumed that you have knowledge of terminology and conduct with regard to other vessels in confined waters.
RYA minimum age 12. Candidates under 16 will be issued with an endorsed certificate.
Please Note:. There is a difference between a Power Boat and a Motor Cruiser. For simplicity a Motor Cruiser has below decks accommodation, and could also be referred to as a Cabin Cruiser. Miramar Sailing School does not offer the RYA Motor Cruising Scheme.
