Powerboating in 2012!

Sailing season is fast approaching and while the last of winter hasn’t gone it’s time to think about ending the hibernation.
Once again DBSC will be running RYA powerboat training courses covering everything you need to get you zipping around safely and covering the safety boat role for racing and regattas.
Prices this season have had to go up a little to cover increasing fuel costs but these courses are still less than half the price of other commercial centres.

Dates to look out for:
26 February, 12.00 to 16.00 Pre season refresher session. £10.00
A chance for existing Level 2 and safety boat drivers to get back out on the water and revitalise those all important driving skills. Flush out the winter muppetry and raise your game ready for the season. Close quarters with a bit of tippin and towin of dinghies.

10/11 March, 09.30 to 16.30  RYA Safety Boat Course. £60.00
For existing Level 2 drivers with a minimum one seasons experience.
Take your powerboating Zen to new heights.  Cover all aspects of recovering capsized dinghies, towing craft and strategies for providing safety cover.

12 May, 10.30 onwards – Honda Youth RIB club heats. FREE
8-12 Yrs and 13-16 yrs only.  Come and tackle the infamous RIB slalom course and see who has what it takes to be the fastest.  Let rip in a 50 horse power RIB and battle for a place at the Scottish final in June.  Win the Scottish final and you could be going to Southampton and be in with a chance of winning a brand new RIB for the Club worth over £17,000!!
All participants will be supervised by a qualified instructor while driving.

11/12 August 09.30 to 16.30  RYA Level 2 course. £80.00
