Powerboat Training



Please note: RHKYC Members having booking priority until 6 June. Non-members will be able to enroll from 6 June onward. Any booking made using the “Member” option must have a valid membership number included. Failure to provide a valid RHKYC membership number will result in the booking being cancelled.

We are using our new course booking system for these courses, if you have any issues booking or would like to amend a booking, please contact us and we will be more than happy to assist. 

There are a few points we would like to highlight for booking on our new system:

  • Enrolling using a desktop PC is much easier. Currently the mobile site is experiencing some issues which we are working on.
  • When selecting a course, please go to the “basket” to book and input student details once you have selected the “Member” or “Non-Member” option. 
  • You may enrol in more than one course at a time. To do so, add multiple courses to the “Basket”.
  • We are currently having issues providing multiple payment options. Currently course payment can only be made via credit card. Members who wish to have their accounts charged instead may do so by contacting us by email after booking and we will refund the credit card payment and charge via your RHKYC account instead. 
  • Please ensure the email you input is correct. The system will automatically generate a confirmation to that email. If you do not receive a confirmation within a day, please contact us and we will help check the system.
  • For Members, please ensure you input your membership number on the student details page. Enrolments made using the member option and price will be cancelled if a valid membership number is not provided.
  • Places in courses will be confirmed shortly after enrolment. If the course is unable to run due to insufficient number of enrolments or other reasons, we will contact you at least 7 days prior to the commencement of the course (if not earlier).

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.


This two-day course provides the skills required when acting as an escort craft, safety boat or coach boat for a fleet of dinghies, windsurfers or canoes, or for racing or training activities.






This course prepares students for the HK Marine Department Examinations. The students may go to the HK Marine Department to register your exam.
