As we dodged a few heavy April showers and took advantage of any welcoming sun, our two newest Powerboat students put their skills to the test in some varied weather conditions.  Having spent the first day learning the fundamentals of how to control and operate 'Bluebird', our 5.3 Ribcraft training vessel on day one, the second day took us on a short passage down Southampton Water and into Hamble.

Once the local sea food delicacies had been sampled, it was time to put everything learnt during the course together for the return journey back to Ocean Village.  This included some higher speed manoeuvring as well as a few more practices at Man Over Board.

Both ladies fought off the conditions with smiles and enthusiasm and should be proud of their efforts to gain their Powerboat Level 2 Certificate.
