powerboating for under 16s

Powerboating is great fun and you can be driving the boat yourself in no time, practising skills and learning how to stay safe on the water.

From the age of 8 you can take our Level 1 Powerboat Course.

From the age of 12 you can take the Level 2 course. You will be taught in suitable boats that aren’t too big or heavy for you to handle, and your course will be adapted to suit your age and ability.

After your course you will able to drive a powerboat under the supervision of an adult. From the age of 16 you can progress further within our practical training scheme.

You can also use RYA powerboat courses to work towards Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
