Scammonden Water Sailing Club (SWSC) is approved to run the RYA approved Powerboat Level 1 & 2 courses that teach the essentials for using safety RIBs. The club also offers the RYA Safety Boat course which provides the skills required when acting as a safety boat or coach boat for a fleet of dinghies, windsurfers or canoes, or for racing or training activities. The accreditation from both courses is recognised throughout the UK.
The following courses are already scheduled for 2018:

  • Powerboat Level 2 – 9/10 April
  • Powerboat Level 2 – 14/15 April
  • Powerboat Level 1 – 20 May (N.B. The Powerboat Level 1 course is not a prerequisite for the Level 2 course)
  • Safety Boat – 26/27 May (N.B. Powerboat Level 2 is a prerequisite for this course)
  • Powerboat Level 2 or Safety Boat – 21/22 July (dependent on interest)
