The sport of power boating is hugely varied, from just pottering about on the River or inland waterways to the mind-blowing speed of f1 powerboats.
Learning to drive a powerboat opens the gateway to a huge range of watersports. It is possible that after 2 days of training with an RYA Qualified Powerboat Instructor one can drive a boat safely with confidence on tidal/sea locations. Whether you choose to bring your own boat or use ours, the opportunities when qualified include wakeboarding, waterskiing and towable toys , as well as the more sedate like fishing and snorkelling.
WHY LEARN WITH EDGE
