RYA Advanced Powerboat Day and Night Course

Plymouth & Devon Schools Sailing Association RYA Powerboat Scheme Syllabus & Logbook G20 Book Cover Photo

This course teaches boat handling, seamanship, pilotage and navigation to the standard required to safely undertake and execute a coastal passage by day and night in familiar waters with a planing powerboat.

At PDSSA we take this course in a variety of powered craft on tidal coastal waters. You will gain experience in boats from small tiller steer RIBS to larger console wheel steer RIBS and also if time allows a run through the exercises in our Plymouth Pilot, a small displacement training powerboat.

It is recommended that all participants consolidate this short introduction with practice between courses.
