Mishearing boating terms can lead to hours wasted trying to work out how a cat and meringue can float. Whip across the waves with today’s Groupon: £66 for a full day Level 1 RYA power boat course at Martin Hubbard Powerboating.
Having joined the Merchant Navy at 16, Martin Hubbard has sat side by side with Poseidon while travelling the world offering instruction in various boats. For 15 years he has been offering an ocean of RYA accredited tuition options to budding skippers with courses in powerboat and motor cruiser control as well as VHF radio usage for safe communication on the high seas. Based at Haven Marina, he brings a relaxed approach to land lubbers eager to brave the waves.
Departing at 9am from Haven Marina bedecked in waterproofs and life jackets, students will take to the water for a full day of instruction. The basics of the boat’s mechanics and controls will all be explained before Martin hands over the reins and gives students the chance to zip across the water as they test the powerboat’s handling capabilities. After a stop for lunch, where seafarers can refuel with any food they have brought, the tuition will continue before the course ends at 5pm. Logbooks will then be stamped indicating time on the water and students will also receive an RYA certificate. Those keen to extend the learning can enjoy a 10% discount on any further courses booked.
