The Sailing Centre offers powerboating courses that are part of the RYA National Powerboat Training Scheme. We bring our flexible and hands-on approach to powerboating and can design a customised course for your specific needs. We can conduct the tuition on your own boat if required, offer pilotage suggestions and advice on local places to go with your boat.

We cover the required syllabus for each of the RYA courses conducted, but we place a lot of emphasis and additional content on seamanship skills, practical tips and local knowledge to make your time boating on Scilly easier and more enjoyable. 

While the primary objective of the course is to get you to the required standard for certification and to make sure you are safe and confident, we make the most of the stunning natural beauty of Scilly and ensure you get to see plenty of the islands whilst on the course.
