Powerboating- fun, fast, and exhilarating

Professional tuition is increasingly seen as vital to safe powerboating and is essential if you are taking your boat abroad. In many countries the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) is a requirement. Calshot has a range of fast planing craft available for all levels of the RYA scheme. For corporate clients we are able to tailor courses and dates to individual requirements.

Family and Young People courses
Our courses are open to youngsters of 14 upwards with a participating adult or 16 and 17 year olds on their own (non-residential only). Don’t forget we also run powerboating courses for young people.
