Kids on Ribs - one day powerboat experience

RYA Powerboat training
This is an opportunity for your children to drive a powerboat. We will ensure your kids have a fantastic day on the River Medway driving our powerful 7.5 metre RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat).
8 years old is the minimum age. Children aged 12 to 16 will be able to complete a 2 day level 2 powerboat course if they so wish.
10am to 4pm

Course Information

The children will learn about safety on the water, be given lifejackets or buoyancy aids and be shown how they operate. In addition to this they will receive a powerboat certificate.

Before we even start the engine, we will go through safety procedures and show them the equipment carried.

A few simple knots will help when they want to tie the boat up.

The aim of this day is for your kids to have fun,
safely driving a powerboat

Boat Handling

The children will learn:

  • the basic rules of the water.
  • how to start and stop the boat.
  • what affect the tide and wind will have on the boat.
  • what to do if someone falls overboard. (don't worry we will not throw your children in the water!)
  • anyone can drive fast, not everyone can complete slow manoeuvres, we will have a parking challenge.

By the end of the day your children would have had a great day out and know how to drive a powerboat under the supervision of an adult .

Why not have a go yourself. We offer adult powerboat courses too

We start the day at 10am and will finish by 4pm at the latest.

There is a maximum of 3 children to one trainer. We will provide all waterproof clothing and safety equipment. Lunch is not provided, so please provide a packed lunch. Make sure your children have adequate warm clothing, as weather conditions can change very quickly.

The cost of this fantastic day is £145 per child.
