    Default Please recommend me a training course/provider

    Hi all.

    A bit of background - I've had my boat about 4 years now, have done a hundred plus hours on it and haven't ever done any formal kind of training. I recently moved from Brighton Marina to the busy Chi and feel now that it would be a good time to learn more about it all to boost my confidence and the safety of my family.

    Level 1 powerboat seems to be the one but would this be a little too basic do you think?

    Many thanks.

    I would have thought level 1 PB a bit of a low start for someone with 4 years of boat ownership behind them. PB L2 at least, IMO.

    Agreed, you won't learn much from PB1 now, it's very basic stuff. PB2 is probably best for you with a view to maybe doing Dayskipper theory next winter.

    PB2 or maybe a tailor made couple of days to cover the bits you're specifically uneasy about. I can vouch for David at 5star or Julie at Mendez, both are really good instructors.

    But he does not teach the Powerboat scheme. He is a Cruising Instructor power which means he teaches Helmsman and Day Skipper practical courses only.

    I have already spoken to the OP and advised Powerboat 2.
