Powerboat Refresher Day
The day will consist of an early induction and discussion as to what aspects of powerboating you need to improve. We can tailor the day to be specific areas or simply a run through a number of syllabus sections. This is about helm time for you and as such the instructor will only drive to demonstrate manoeuvres for you. As you hold a Powerboat Level 2 certificate you drive!
As the day progresses and your confidence grows we can create scenarios which stretch your skills and put you out of your comfort zone to enable a bit of alternative thinking.
As the lake is usually fairly busy its a great opportunity to learn about ‘Rules of the Road’ or IRPCS.. Do you know them? and to put them into practice.
We also offer sessions in the use of GPS and with the dual instruments on the boat we can set a number of tasks and examples for use and limitations of GPS to again increase your working experience of navigation systems.
If navigation and chart work are your interest we can spend a period looking at these, although you may wish to attend the Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course we also offer.
Give us a call and have a chat about what you need out of a day like this.
