At Sea N Shore we teach safety first and with the Powerboat 1 course we teach children as young as eight years old. We ask that we can contact the parents by phone, during the time that your children are with us. It is a great opportunity for parents to join their children as they learn the first step into safe boating. Children learn by interaction and fun, we aim to make their day as engaging and enjoyable as possible, using skilful games and fun filled challenges along the way.

On this one day course we cover:

  • Safety equipment, lifejackets, flares, first aid and radio
  • Launching & recovery
  • Boat handling, basic fuel systems, basic fault finding
  • Approaching and securing to a buoy, rope work and knots
  • Anchoring
  • Leaving and coming alongside
  • Tides, pilotage and basic chart awareness
