RYA Powerboat Courses
Part of Dive Pembrokeshire UK
RYA Powerboat Courses Levels 1 & 2
Based in Neyland overlooking the marina and waterway.
We are a recognised RYA training
centre based at Neyland Marina where the lectures and boats will be. Here you
will find a lovely cafe and bar overlooking the marina. Accommodation can be supplied at the centre if you so require.
The marina has toilets, showers, cafe, bar, nature walks, bike hire, and free car parking. There is also a 'Pod" which sleeps 2 adults and 2 children which can be rented.
The coastline of Pembrokeshire is some of the best in the UK, providing much to see and do. From coastal navigation, night passages along the Milford Haven Waterway, rough water at St Ann's Head and plenty of sheltered areas too! We have some great beaches too, like St Brides, Newgale and Broad Haven.
You will find all the courses both interesting and challenging, and you can be sure of having a great time. You will be under the guidance of qualified instructors who will take you through step by step how to handle a powerboat in rough and calm conditions. We have two instructors available, and work within a ratio of three to one.
Many thanks for making the Powerboat course such a brilliant time!! Not only did we learn a huge amount, that even after many years experience, we were still unaware of but also our boat handling skills have improved immeasurably. Your thoughtful and progressive approach to learning made the experience fun and taking us right up to tacking 2.5 m swells by the end an achievement in itself Thanks once again !!
Patrick, Sam and Joe Collier.
