Menai Dragons usually takes a break over the winter as the weather and light reduce our opportunities to run safe sessions.

However, with the many interruptions this year, we sure many of you are keen to get out on the water, and so we are excited to offer 3 sessions in November.

We are only inviting existing squad members to join us and we will be teaching you Powerboating.

That's right, you will get the chance to learn how not only to be a helpful crew but also how to safely drive the rescue boats that your instructors use.

This practical introduction to powerboating will provide you with the basic skills necessary to operate a powerboat safely and confidently in coastal waters. You will begin by developing your low speed close quarter boat handling skills before being introduced to driving at planing speed. As well as having lots of fun, we will be following the syllabus of the RYA powerboat scheme.

Plas Menai will provide all necessary personal protective clothing including wetsuits, waterproofs, buoyancy aids and helmets.

Please bring with you;

  • Swimming togs & towel
  • Footwear for on the water
  • 50p for locker
  • Packed lunch
