Youth Powerboat Training

 

A fun course for kids and teens ages 12 to 16 packed with information and training to give you the skills and knowledge you need to drive a powerboat safely. Course topics include: safety checks, proper set-up and preventative maintenance, maneuvering at low and high speed, towing, coming along side, buoy slalom in forward and reverse, anchoring, crew overboard and lots more. Everybody comes back with a big smile after the high speed stuff! 

We also cover weather and tides, right of way rules, navigation, safety tips and boating laws in the classroom. You decide if you want to take the written exam to get your Small Powerboat Certification.

  • Prerequisite:
    • Ability to swim 50 yards, must be 12 years old on the first day of class.
