Powerboat Courses

The wellbeing and safety of our students and staff is our top priority.  Therefore in light of current Government advice and restrictions with regards to Covid19 we have decided to postpone all courses indefinitely.  If you are booked on a course we will contact you to discuss options.  

We are working with the RYA to resume training courses as soon as possible in line with Covid19 restrictions.

If you have any concerns or queries please contact us:-
