RYA Intermediate Powerboat

RYA Intermediate Powerboat


RYA Powerboat Level 3 Course


2 days

Scheduled Intermediate Powerboat courses are held at Ocean Village MarinaSouthampton, SO14 3XB and in the Solent area.

Likely participants:

The Intermediate Powerboat course, also known as the RYA Powerboat Level 3 Course, suits those possessing Powerboat Level 2, a reasonable level of boating experience, a season or two, and a keenness to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to plan and undertake short coastal passages.

It is ideal for those wishing to proceed on to the Advanced Powerboat Course.

At first glance the syllabus reads as very similar to RYA Powerboat Level 2. The key difference though is the level to which each subject is covered and the practical application of the skills and knowledge developed. The course will address directly the use of electronic aids such as GPS, looking at the integration of these aids with techniques such as “The railway track”, “the spider’s web” etc.

This powerboat training course includes:

  • Basic pilotage and passage planning for small boats.
  • Chart work balancing the use of GPS and use of charts in a small craft.
  • Correct use of GPS (XTE (cross track error), SOG (Speed over ground), BTW & DTW).
  • Other areas such as tides and weather.

Hold a RYA Powerboat Level 2 Certificate – Essential
