RYA Powerboat Training

Published by at 14:23 under Club Notices,Racing

On a very cold Saturday last, we completed our second RYA Powerboat Level 2 training course this autumn, with five more Club members successfully gaining their certificates.  They are Izzy Duce, Janet Willsmer, Adrian Bunting, Allen Burrell and Brant Chapman.  Well done!


Since we registered as an RYA Training Establishment in 2009, we have trained 33 people up to Level 2.  Before that, with the support of SMAC we helped a further 20 members gain this valuable qualification.


Our team, Tony Clarke, Toby Speller and Ken Clarke, get a huge buzz from teaching on this course and as a result, we know that we are adding to the pool of skilled powerboat drivers in the Club, providing safety cover for our racing.  Without that cover, we cannot race.


If you would like to join this group and get your Level 2 qualification, contact any one of us through the office or email [email protected] and we will endeavour to sign you up for one of our 2012 sessions.  The charge of £25 covers the cost of training materials and contributes to the cost of fuel for the practical part of the course.

    £25? Is that all it takes to sign on? In my experience achieving P2 at TBYC is akin to joining the masons.
