  • Use of one of our safety boats and other resources
  • Fuel
  • Loan of a buoyancy aid
  • RYA Safety Boat Certificate
  • Free parking on site

Why Choose Portsmouth Watersports Centre For This Course?:

You are guaranteed plenty of practical experience in up-righting, towing and dealing with single-handed dinghies, double handed-dinghies, other powerboats, windsurfers and kayaks. Few powerboat centres can provide the variety of resources to cover all of these scenarios in two days, but as with all of our courses we believe that your gaining hands on experience of the necassary skills is far more effective than sitting in a classroom watching slides about safety boating.
