The training team are offering two new training opportunities for HBSC members to improve their powerboat or safety boat skills: regular powerboat improvers and a practical day covering safety boat techniques/rescue. Click here for other powerboat training courses including cadet PB training.
Powerboat improvers, coordinated by Doug Whiteoak, is for any member who wants to improve his or her powerboat skills and knowledge. We will run through pre water checks, launch and recovery, boat handling skills and anything the participants would like to improve.
It will run alongside some Saturday dinghy improver sessions, subject to instructor availability. There will be a maximum of three participants per instructor.
Cost is £5 per person per session (50% reduction for cadets) to cover the running and upkeep of the boats (fuel, insurance, maintenance etc). To participate, email email@example.com indicating your availability.
Powerboat improvers will run independently of dinghy improvers and there will be separate boat providing safety cover for dinghy improvers.
Dinghy improvers coordinator Laurie Dengate is happy to hear from anyone who wants to put their powerboat and safety boat skills into action by providing safety boat cover during dinghy improvers; to volunteer email Laurie via firstname.lastname@example.org.
