The RYA Powerboat Level 1 - Start Powerboating is a great way to spend a day afloat as a parent and child (or up to 2 children) with no prior experience, providing an introduction to powerboating, techniques for launching and recovery, everyday boat handling and the use of safety equipment.
It is a great taster course into Powerboating, it's also a perfect course for those children that go boating with their families to ensure they can take an active part of your outings afloat.
This course is in effect a scaled down version of Level 2 focussing purely on the practical handling elements of Level 2. During the course almost all of the time is spent on the water practising manoeuvres but there is also time to look at the safety aspects of boating.
