RYA POWERBOAT LEVEL 2

The RHKYC is a recognised RYA Training Centre for powerboat courses. To drive a RHKYC RIB, you must first hold the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate. Successful students who also hold a HK PVOC 2 may be added to the Club’s approved RIB driver list. Spaces are limited as the ratio is three students to one instructor and most weekends we only have one or two powerboats available for this training. Please complete and return the application to reserve a place.

This two-day entry-level course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. It focuses on low-speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planning speed, and collision regulations.

All courses are open to anyone over the age of 16 years.
