Solent Boat Training Provides The Perfect Day
Solent Boat Training in Southampton arranged a team building weekend with a difference, an RYA powerboat training course which was both rewarding and fun.
We wanted our management team to have a relaxing but rewarding event and this seems to be something a little different. The 2 day course ran from Southampton's main marina which turned out to be a 5 minute walk from Southampton`s main restaurant district, so the evening meal was very close at hand as well. All our staff commented on how fantastic it was to spend the night on one of the luxury motorboats that Solent Boat Training owns and was included within the price of the course, actually it`s simply free for any of their students.
The course itself was called the powerboat level 2 and actually gives you a real qualification that would allow you to hire a boat in the UK or aboard, that was a real bonus. The course was a good mix of both classroom theory and practical time on the water with the balance being 70/30 in favour of on the water time. The boat we used was a 7m long rib boat powered by a supercharged 200hp engine. We ran of speeds up to 20knts which as fast enough for learners but the boat would actually do nearer 45knts in the right hands.
All 3 of us passed the course and gained our powerboat qualification, many thanks Solent Boat Training.
