Course Content – – Powerboat Development – Non RYA
This will be dependent on the customer requirements with consultation from the Chief Instructor, but people normally wish to follow up on their Powerboat Level 2 Course. You can learn a little more about the use of engine trim and Powerboating in different sea and tide conditions using throttle and trim more than you did on your level 2 Course.
The Instructor to Student Ratio will be 3:1 like the Powerboat Level 2 Course, but you may find less people on this course or even being on your own.
