Thinking of being more adventurous and going further afield, then the RYA Intermediate (Coastal Cruising) Powerboat course is a 2-day course and a natural progression from the RYA Powerboat level 2 as it aims to teach powerboating up to the standard required to safely complete a short coastal passage by day.
Don’t underestimate the importance and value of this course. The RYA Intermediate Powerboat course is the natural progression between the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course and the RYA Advanced Powerboat course.
