With the sun finally gracing us with it's presence, Solent Boat Training, ran the first Powerboat Experience Builder of this year.  After a short time planning their day out in the Solent, which included preparing some passage plans, pilotage and familiarising themselves with our Ribcraft 5.85, three guys (with various levels of experience) headed out into Southampton Water to start the first leg.  There were plenty of question and answers as well as some helpful lesson learnt throughout the day.

Having completed their passages to, Hamble, Portsmouth, Haslar, Wooton Creek, Osbourne Bay, Cowes, Calshot before returning to Ocean Village via Port Hamble for a fuel stop, everyone agreed that they had had the chance to gain invaluable experience in not just boat handling and navigation, but also they'd become far more familiar with the Solent and what it has to offer the leisure boater.
