RYA Powerboat Levels 1 & 2

Cornwall Outdoors is a provider of the RYA Powerboat Scheme for those wanting to drive small open powerboats such as RIBs (rigid inflatable boats), sports boats and small launches. These boats are generally powered by an outboard engine, do not normally have accommodation on board, and so are not intended for extended cruises. They may be used for short coastal or inland trips, fishing, and safety cover for other water sports, waterskiing or as a support boat for diving. If you use powerboats for leisure or work, or in connection with another activity such as sailing or rescue, we have a course for you.

RYA Powerboat Course

The courses are split into two levels:
