“RYA power boat level 2”

Written on: 04/04/2013

My son-in-law having bought a rib and now living in France had persuaded me that in order for me to get up to speed and conform to French legislation I needed a certificate of competence. Having searched the web for availability this course certainly fitted the bill. It was very well balanced between practical and theory and whist improving my skills and competence proved to be very enjoyable. I would certainly recommend this course to a friend and the only thing that could have been improved… Read Full Review

“Power Boat Level 2”

Written on: 03/04/2013 by dannynewman (1 review written)

I found the course to be most interesting and presented in a straight forward format. [name removed], the instructor, was a very engaging person and talked with great enthusiasm. I have 35 years of boating experience whilst the other 2 people on the course were complete novices and [name removed] was very considerate and patient demonstrating the practical elements of the course. I would recommend this course to my friends… Read Full Review

“Fantastic”

Written on: 03/04/2013 by Megan.b (1 review written)

I went to do the powerboating course on my own as i needed it to do a windsurfing instructor course. I was at first apprehensive about going to southampton on my own, as it is not local for me. However as soon as i arrived i was put at ease and had a fantastic two days. The course was great fun being able to drive the powerboat and even the theory side was really interesting and greatly helps you be more confident out on the water when you know what you doing, and why! The instructor [name… Read Full Review

“Powerboat Level 2”

Written on: 02/04/2013 by cosmino (1 review written)

We were a group of three friends without any boating experience. All of us decided to take the Powerboat Level 2 course, mostly to get the ICC. The course was excellent, the instructor very competent and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was pleasant and we did feel at ease asking any questions. The course involved a lot of hands on and very useful theory classes. At the end of it you feel confident to handle a powerboat, plan a trip, be aware of the safety rules, calculate your position… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience”

Written on: 31/03/2013 by janekg (1 review written)

I've had the pleasure of attending a RYA Powerboar Level 2 course run by Solent Boat Training and I can only say it was truly a first-class experience. The boat was very well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. Our instructor was clearly very experienced and did an excellent job of sharing that experience and his knowledge. The whole of the course, both in the classroom and the time spent on water (of which there was plenty) felt professional, safe and was a lot of fun - which is… Read Full Review

“ONE VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER”

Written on: 23/03/2013

I attended the RYA first aid and VHF courses, which were both conducted professorially and with a great deal of expertise. All students were put at ease by the relaxed and friendly atmosphere created by the very experienced instructors, I would recommend any course conducted by Solent Boat training. Both the practical and theory on both courses were indispensably and built confidence. Its only left for me to thank all staff for a wonderful learning experience. … Read Full Review

“PWC Proficieney Licence Course”

Written on: 16/03/2013

I recently attended the first PWC course of 2013 and had an absolute blast! Our instructor, though young, was very knowledgeable as well as experienced and delivered the information concisely and in a relaxed and fun manner. We were lucky with the weather as the sun came out in the morning and lasted until half way into the afternoon before clouding over for the last hour. There were four on the course and everyone got on well and really enjoyed themselves. We had 2 jet ski's between us and… Read Full Review

“PB Level 2 Course”

Written on: 16/03/2013

As an experienced sailor (YM, ICC) with own boat, looking to purchase a RIB, decided to take the PB2 course last weekend. As I searched the web Solent Boat training caught my eye as it was well organised and one left well informed about what they did. Booked it on line, Matt& Sean followed it up with email & phone - great communication. Likes: 1. The training RIB (Ribcraft 5.8m) had all the safety features you would expect from a RYA training boat, eg. Liferaft, Grab bag etc. It featured a… Read Full Review

I attended the Powerboat Level 2 in mid January and the weather was aweful, snowing to be precise. However Matt still made the whole course really enjoyable and as i was the only person on the course, dropped me off at my hotel and picked me up the next morning. I learned alot on the course and above all i enjoyed myself at the same time. Would highly recommend Solent Boat Training :D… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2013 by Prebbs (1 review written)

I have owned small sport boats on and off for around 15 years and only ever went from Southampton across the island etc i completely blagged my knowledge to staying within the main shipping lane taking the assumption if a large vessel is ok sure the hell I am and to no surprise I did get away with it, but anyone can fly alone the Solent it's when you come to moore up to your pontoon it can get a little worrying especially somewhere like the Hamble as the tide is rushing out, that's where these… Read Full Review

“Fantastic School, Boats & Instructors”

Written on: 03/03/2013

I have just done the RYA powerboat 2 course and had 2 fantastic days on the water in the Solent. The teacher Matt started by explaining how tides and weather are so important and then we went out on the water and he was right. We did safety checks and planned a trip to Hamble,then actually did it in the rib boat. We did 20 knots which does not sound much but it was great. We used the anchor, picked up a mooring boy and so much more. Next time I hear the shipping weather forecast on the radio I… Read Full Review

“Advanced Powerboat”

Written on: 01/03/2013

I have used a number of various schools on the Solent for mileage Building and RYA PB Courses. I must say that Solent Boat Training are in my opinion the best. Matt and Sean are excellent tutors who teach various ways of performing tasks at Sea. Their tutoring has dramatically improved my PB skill set. As for the Advanced PB Course I would recommend them taking it with SBT. It was a great experience and the night time exercise was exceptional. Thanks again SBT… Read Full Review

“RYA PowerBoat Advanced Course”

Written on: 25/02/2013 by Andrew3103 (1 review written)

Matt and Sean clearly love what they do and their enthusiasm for others to enjoy boating safely and clearly shone through. I was a little unsure that I would have the skills to complete the course but speaking to them on the phone and taking a mileage builder really helped me get my boat handling up to speed and knowledge ready to go. In the classroom, the course content was put across in an easy and encouraging fashion through a mix of training aides and exercises. Putting this in to live… Read Full Review

Amazing! The 2 day PB2 course was sensational - the best fun we've had in an absolute age and the weather was pretty kind to us too which was a small bonus compared with how phenominally good fun this course is. Matt was our utterly brilliant trainer who clearly loves his job and has a true passion for teaching the joys, thrills and safety of powerboating - especially in the busy waters of the Solent. We crossed the shipping channel in the safety of his knowledge and skill imparted, and the… Read Full Review
