The RYA PWC (Jet Ski) Course is for those wanting to add an extra qualification to their CV or for those wanting to learn how to operate these powerful crafts and legally ride in international waters.
This is a industry standard course as 98% of superyachts overseas have watercraft on board such as Jet Ski’s and Powerboats.
You may know Personal watercraft as Jet Ski’s. They are fast, agile and exhilarating machines that need to be operated safely and responsibly. The RYA PWC Jet Ski one-day course is designed for both first time and experienced riders.
The skills covered are launching, handling and recovering, high speed manoeuvres, collision regulations and much more. This course is designed to be fun and informative.

Students stay on the boat during the RYA Competent Crew, Day Skipper & Yachtmaster Practical courses to get a real feel for onboard living and is a mandatory requirement. A stipend for essentials (tea, coffee, cereal, milk, etc) is included in the course price. During the theory week and STCW, students have the option of staying at our Academy in the Waterfront.
For practical courses we ask that students bring a sleeping bag, towel, toiletries, change of clothes, and suitable wet weather gear. Sunglasses and sunscreen are also a good idea.
For the theory course students will need a 2B pencils, a pen, a notebook and where possible, their own Portland plotter and dividers (we can also loan to the student). We can also help with the purchase of any of these materials.
