Please Note: Courses require a minimum of 2 students to be confirmed as running , and may be subject to cancellation if that minimum number has not been met.  

This is the most popular course and the two days over which it is run gives just enough time to cover the extensive syllabus for both practical instruction and theory for a coastal endorsement During the two days, the course subjects are covered in adequate depth to enable the student to be safe in basic boating.

The instructor will cover the following topics with you during your time with them:

On the second day of the course we spend time looking at charts, tides, navigation buoyage and using a compass and GPS. This will give you a basic knowledge on planning your voyages for short coastal voyages.

Once you have passed the Level 2 course should you wish to apply for your International Certificate of Competence (ICC) from the RYA, we will provide the relevant forms which coupled with a photo and a copy of your certificate will get you your ‘licence’.The ICC Licence will qualify you for power craft up to 10 metres and covers you if boating abroad. The ICC is available at a charge through the RYA unless you are a member then it is free. Please note that the ICC will be issued to British citizens, or bona-fida residents of the UK (proof of address then required for non-British citizens).
