SBT Powerboat Night Exercises Course

This SBT course aimed at students who ideally have completed the RYA Powerboat level 2, Powerboat Level 3 intermediate and day skipper theory and are looking to add some night hours before attending the RYA Powerboat Level 4 advanced.

This is an intermediate level course for students who are comfortable with powerboat handling and daytime passage making looking for some night experience. 

It can also be used by sailing students looking to build night hours but they must hold at least a powerboat level 2 certificate.
