Have you got a member who would like to take an RYA Power Boat Level 2 Certificate Course on Saturday/Sunday 7th/8th January in Falmouth?
In order to try to establish a larger pool of members qualified to drive Umpire Boats and Safety Boats for Regattas, the Cornwall Rowing Association has arranged for two RYA Recognised Training Centres in Cornwall to run Power Boat and other RYA Training Courses for us, at prices significantly below the normal commercial rates. These are Falmouth Training Solutions (FTS), and Camel Sailing School (CSS) at Rock.
Over the next couple of months, we may be able to offer further reduced price courses to CPGA member Clubs as well, but in the short-term, we have one vacancy on this first course for 2017.
Candidates must be 16 or over. The Course includes some theory, but is mainly practical in a RIB with 3 candidates and an instructor. It aims to teach powerboat handling skills, seamanship and basic pilotage. Price: £150 – (Normal commercial price = around £280).
If you have a definite candidate for this course, please contact Penny Chuter immediately, and before 31st December: [email protected]
Please provide the name, club, email address and telephone number of your candidate, and Penny will contact them directly with further details, as time is short.
