If its a while since you did your level 2 course and have not been on the water since, a development day is a great way of refreshing your boat handling skills and also its a great day out. Speak to us about your needs and we will tailor a day on the water for you and you also get some tuition at the same time from one of our Instructors. If you have done your Level 2 Powerboat Course with us, we may also know what you should brush up on or suggest what might be best for you. The development day also puts miles in your log book.Read More »
