The aim of this course is to provide a brief taste of powerboating for beginners. The practical course will include some basic boat handling techniques and a little of the essential background knowledge required to safety operate a powerboat.

  • Course Type: Theory & Practical

  • Note: Under Irish law it is illegal for anyone under sixteen to operate a powerboat that is capable of 17 knots
  • Course Content: Launching and preparing the boat, basic boat handling and returning to shore, Basic theory.
  • Ability After Course: Basic boat handling techniques and a knowledge of how to safety operate a powerboat


The number of people signing up for the course will dictate the price - we hope to to keep the fees as low as possible. People interested can contact Mary Glynn on 0876555512 or Adrian O Connell on 0866026700.
