“Power Boat Level 2 ”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by BobBray (1 review written)

I booked this course immediately after the PWC course simply because it was a great experience and rekindled my love for boating. Bo was my instructor ,same as the PWC course, and his ability to balance informative and formal learning with challenging fun is first class. The 2 days are packed with learning both theory and practice and there is so much to learn. And don't worry if you get things wrong as I did then you simply go back and do it again. My end game is to further my experience and… Read Full Review

“Useful, organised, and fun course!!!”

Written on: 26/08/2013

The course started with a few hours of theory which for me (new to jet ski and boats) was quite useful, covered the basic safety aspects as well as weather, basic navigation techniques, and last but not least learning to behave on water in the same manner that we learn whe we drive, who has priority when and how to maneuvre in each case. This was explained in a basic manner and no previous experience required. Instructor had good communication skills, was quite approachable and helpful with any… Read Full Review

“Power Boat Level 2”

Written on: 26/08/2013

My Partner and I have just spent 2 days completing RYA Level 2 with our instructor Sean. Although the course is very intense with a lot to learn if you have never had any previous experience, Sean is patient and full of the best teaching skills for you to gain incredible confidence over the 2 days. Sean was very skilled, personable and communicated at an excellent level all the time with us. Although it is only a 2 day course it has given us so much more confidence to understand all the key… Read Full Review

“good training for ICC via RYA PB 2”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by fordporter (1 review written)

Beau was great teacher - remained calm in all circumstances explained everything until we could remember it or do it and obviously knew everything and was very enthusiastic about boats, the course and teaching. Finished the course confident to start boating but mindful of the risks and how to avoid trouble. Sleeping on the large boat was a great plus and for free… Read Full Review

“Power Boat Level 2”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by derekgtwo (1 review written)

A brilliantly handled course, the theory sections had a detailed course structure clearly explained, with ample individual student time to assimilate the points and to query unclear areas, if any. The practical on water boat handling challenged the student skills, but always within safety limits, with practical applications of the theory practiced until the Instructor was satisfied that the next manoeuvre could be attempted. The Instructor was highly qualified in all aspects of power boating… Read Full Review

“Power Boat 2 Course”

Written on: 22/08/2013

The PB2 was my second course after the Personal Watercraft Course with Solent Boat Training. I booked the PB2 simply because I enjoyed it so much and got so much from the PWC. The PB2 course was excellent in terms of the balance between practical and theory. Our course instructor was Bo who by chance took the PWC and true to form was first class. He has the ability to balance formal instruction with light hearted humour and fun. His depth (excuse the pun) of knowledge on all subjects was… Read Full Review

“Great Day Skipper Course”

Written on: 06/08/2013 by PaulOGrady (1 review written)

I started my Day Skipper theory as a distance learning course with another supplier which was proving very difficult and lacked the direct contact you get with an instructor. I was running out of time and decided to do a full time course. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and had a great way of getting over the more complex elements of the course. I also enjoyed the experience on staying aboard one of their boats as accommodation during the course. I would thoroughly recommend Solent… Read Full Review

Instructor was extremely thorough and very encouraging. Safety aspects of the course were fully explored. Solent is like the M25 of the boating world. If you can hack it there you can hack it anywhere. Course is excellent value for money… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2013 by Chelseafan07 (1 review written)

Fantastic course, really well run with one of the best instructors I have had on any training - Beau! It was hard choosing the right provider for me but being able to stay on one of the motorboats swung it in Solant's favor and so glad it did:) Top notch training - will be doing more with them Free accommodation on the yatch - what's not to like! … Read Full Review

“Great training and practical advice”

Written on: 04/06/2013 by amberleyflyer1 (1 review written)

I had a bespoke two day course to help improve my boat handling skills, get me through CEVNI and upgrade my ICC to cover vessels over 10m. I had two very enjoyable days with Solent Boat Training. I was impressed with the knowledge of my instructor, and his willingness to go beyond the simple training and really share his extensive boat experience with me. Solent Boat Training also helped me with the planning for our first channel crossing to Guernsey and provided an excellent skipper, Beau… Read Full Review

“RYA VHF Short Range Certificate”

Written on: 04/06/2013 by Bishee (1 review written)

I had a great time on this course. At first, I thought that I was out of my depth but soon realised that the other attendants were probably as inexperienced as I. We all worked together in teams and the variety of students was quite pleasing - I was concerned that I was going to be oldest, but found that two others had several years on me! The course was friendly, specific, easy to understand, relevant and an effortless way to get qualified. Instruction, demonstrations and hands-on tutorials… Read Full Review

“Powerboat Level 2”

Written on: 01/05/2013

I attended the Powerboat Level 2 course this weekend (27th & 28th April). Having no experience previously. I was greeted by the team and introduced to my instructor. The information and skills were demonstrated and performed over the 2 days by him, with him always giving real examples to tie up with the theory of powerboating. Having spent 20 years in education I would grade him a Grade 1 if he taught in the FE sector. Overall an intense, enjoyable and well worth course. I have been so… Read Full Review

“PWC Jet Ski Course”

Written on: 30/04/2013

I recently attended the PWC Jet Ski Course. Great fun, the classroom work was kept short but informative and relevant. Instructor was great striking a balance between having fun and picking up the relevant points. Plenty of time on the water and impressive Jet Skis to ride on. I'll be booking some more time on the Jet Skis in the coming months. Fab day out cheers guys… Read Full Review

“Powerboat Level 2”

Written on: 29/04/2013

I took the Powerboat Level 2 course and had a fantastic time and learnt lots. The Ribs used were of high standard and well maintained. The staff were very professional, highly qualified and extremely knowledgeable. We stayed one of the yachts supplied by Solent Boat Charters which was extremely comfortable and included in the course price. I will definitely be using them again and highly recommend them for all your training needs. Thanks. … Read Full Review

“Rib ticklingly good!”

Written on: 26/04/2013

What made the powerboat 2 course such a success for us was how you pitched it so well for a family group of three from 12 years to fifty something ensuring that everyone stayed engaged for two days. Undoubtedly treating us to a classroom afloat on one of the larger motor cruisers was inspiring. But the mix of theory with practical exercises on the water was the key to giving us the confidence to go ribbing whilst understanding our limitations. The location is ideal for marina and harbour… Read Full Review

“So Good I've Booked The Next Course!”

Written on: 24/04/2013

On Saturday 20th April I attended the PWC Course which was a gift from my wife. Well it turned out to be one of the best gifts ever. The instructor Bo together with support from Ollie made it a greatly informative and enjoyable day. Bo got the balance spot on between fun and formal inspiring us to learn whilst taking in the excitement of the whole boating experience. The course delivered so much more than I was anticipating, a full day from 09.30 to 18.00 everything included and more. This week… Read Full Review

“Friendly. Fun. Professional. ”

Written on: 22/04/2013

The tutor was very professional and engaging as an instructor. The course itself was very water based to not much hanging around in the classroom. The facilities at Ocean Village and the ribs themselves were all very tidy and the marina itself is a nice quiet place to go over the basics. The Hamble/ Southampton is a great place for beginners. Over the 2 day course both I and the other person on the course really got the most out of it. I'd highly recommend it to anyone else… Read Full Review
