Powerboat Level 2 course is aimed at students without any previous knowledge and experience on powerboats.
The course provides two days of practical training in boat handling and safety in powerboats. The course covers everyday boat handling and the use of safety equipment, securing to a buoy, anchoring, planing speed manoeuvres, collision regulations, leaving and coming alongside, and man overboard recovery drills.
The 2 days will be predominantly practical and on the water with only minimal sessions ashore. During the shore sessions we will cover some essential navigation points and the basic portions of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea.
There is no exam during the course, rather it is a continuous learning and evaluative experience during these days with your instructor.
Students who successfully complete the RYA Powerboat Level 1 or RYA Powerboat Level 2 course are awarded the appropriate RYA course completion certificate. This course will also enable you to apply for the ICC (International Certificate of Competence).
Please note that it is mandatory by law to have a license to drive a pleasure craft in Antigua and Barbuda.
