Powerboat Courses

SYCSA are running an RYA Safetyboat course (2 days course) on Saturdays, 13th & 20th February 2016.

This course will follow the RYA Safetyboat scheme, leading to the Safetyboat certificate. It is designed as a fleet rescue qualification, so you are able to provide safety or support cover to a range of craft, particularly sailing or windsurfing.
Participants must be 16yr or over, and have one seasons driving experience. A Safety Boat Handbook will be supplied in advance; it is expected that students will study the handbook prior to starting the course
The cost is £210.00, but this is reduced to £165.00 for Durleigh members.

*************
Whilst the RYA feel that the Safety Boat Certificate is the ideal level of training, we appreciate that not all aspects of this course are applicable to our sailing at Durleigh.

With this in mind SYCSA can offer an alternative of a one day Basic Rescue Skills course, running on Saturday 5th March

This course will follow the parts of the Safety Boat course relevant to small clubs, like Durleigh Sailing Club, and aims to provide the skills and knowledge to help club powerboat drivers in basis rescue techniques for the types of craft that sail at Durleigh.

Please note, this is an independent training course, and does not have RYA certification, although in-house certification will be given. If RYA certification is required, the you should take the RYA Safety Boat Course
Participants must be 16yr or over, and ideally have one seasons driving experience.
The cost is £75.00 for Durleigh members.
Safety boat handbooks are not included in the course fee, but can be purchased from SYCSA for £9.50 (£10.99 from the RYA)
