RYA POWERBOAT LEVEL 1 OVERVIEW: RYA Powerboat Level 1 is the first course in the RYA Powerboat Training Scheme, this one-day course offers a taster and introduction to the sport of powerboating. Sometime referred to as the RYA PB1 Course, it is suitable for complete beginners, however most people book the Powerboat Level 2 Course (2 days) as this includes everything in the Level 1 and is more comprehensive. COURSE DURATION: The Powerboat Level 1 is a short, one day course, run from 0915 to 1645. We run this popular course most weekends and some weekdays so call our unit for more advice on this course.
