The Advanced powerboat course is both interesting and challenging. It is more technical than the other powerboat courses, looking at areas such as night-time navigation (we plan and run a passage after dark on the first evening which can mean a very late finish to the first day in the summer). We also look at safety topics such as grid search patterns, helicopter rescue, rough water handling etc, and go into much more detail on subjects such as meteorology. Looking for chocolate bars in the Solent is the marine equivalent of looking for a needle in a haystack, but we are disappointed on the rare occasions when we come back unsuccessful!

Your boat handling will need to be good, and your theory knowledge should already be to the level of Day Skipper Theory as the pace of the course is fast with lots packed into the two days. In order to be able to do the course participants already have to hold the Short Range Certificate (or the old VHF radio certificate) and a current marine first aid qualification such as RYA 1st aid.
