We are pleased to be introducing the RYA’s new “Powerbility” programme at AHOY.
Powerability compliments and dovetails into the RYA Powerboat scheme at Level 1.
The syllabus covers the clothing and safety equipment an individual needs, getting started in a powerboat, developing crew skills and what it takes to be a helm.
Some 30 tasks are set out under these headings with Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates available. The aim is to encourage skill development and ongoing participation on a pathway into the rest of the RYA Powerboat Scheme.
We will be rolling this out in the Autumn and it will form part of our Wednesday Sailability crew’s activities.
