Powerboat Refresher to in Preparation for the Safety Boat Certificate

 

The next round of powerboat refresher days will begin on Saturday the 5th of May. The two-hour slots are open to members holding a National Powerboat Certificate (PB2). The aim of the programme is to help members get their powerboat driving skills up to scratch to undertake the safety boat certificate course on Saturday the 19th and Sunday 20th May.

Boats will be crewed two up (i.e. helm and crew) as this is a more standard safety boat crewing protocol. Each session will cost one standard voucher.
