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?:
When we first became a Powerboat Training Centre our Principal had well over a decade of experience as a full time dinghy, multihull and windsurf Instructor. He had developed a range of techniques for coping with various craft. Another decade on and we have further developed these techniques. Over the years we have invested in various resources to ensure we can run this course properly.
You are guaranteed plenty of practical experience in up-righting, towing and dealing with single-handed dinghies, double handed-dinghies, other powerboats, windsurfers and kayaks. Few powerboat centres can provide the variety of resources to cover all of these scenarios in two days, but as with all of our courses we believe that your gaining hands on experience of the necassary skills is far more effective than sitting in a classroom watching slides about safety boating.
