Our powerboat training falls into three disciplines; open powerboats (up to 10m), motor cruisers (over 10m) and personal watercraft (Jet Skis). We run the full range of RYA courses in each discipline. We also offer a range of BWS Ski Boat Driver and BSAC dive boat operator courses.Learn More
Our RYA sailing courses fall into two disciplines - keelboating and sail cruising. Yacht sailing can be inshore, offshore or trans ocean. Bareboat and skippered charter are available. We also compete in a large number of International yacht racing events on both sides of the Atlantic.Learn More
We offer a wide range of support courses in First Aid, safety, communications, boat care, navigation and meteorology. A lot of courses lead to world recognised RYA, STCW or HSE qualifications, others are Stormforce specific courses such as 12-volt electric or Weather for Yachtsmen.Learn More
How do you fancy teaching boating to others? We train hundreds of sailing and powerboat instructors every year across all disciplines. Join a short instructor course or a fast-track instructor programme.Learn More
FAST TRACK COURSES
A range of modular training courses to allow sailors and power boaters to fast track their way into our industry. These courses work because they consolidate all of the necessary training into a short time period and we run with a low ratio of students to instructor.Learn More

Why choose Stormforce Coaching for this course?:
Powerboat Instructor and Advanced Powerboat Instructor Courses are taught by Powerboat Trainers. We are one of the very few companies in the world that has two Powerboat Trainers on its' full time permanent staff. This means we do not have to rely on external contractors and can be much more flexible with training dates. It also means we are able to look after customers rather than relying on an external Trainer to come in and run the course.
As a company we have run a diverse range of powerboat courses. This means our Trainers can relate to the type of craft you will be using and the environment you will be working in. Our Instructor course is run predominantly using our 6m and 8m RIBs, although we are also able to make use of one of our displacement craft or tiller steered powerboats where appropriate.
