Course Information
Where do we complete the training?
We use Pittwater as our training area on our boat. The lesson will start and finish at The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Newport. If you would prefer a different location, please just let us know and we will try to make it work.
Can we use our own boat?
Yes, we will need to confirm your vessel must be suitable for what we are doing, but as long as it is then that is encouraged.
How long is the training?
It depends on the number of people completing the course. For 1-2 people, the training will take up to 4 hours. For 3-4 people, it will take up to 6 hours to complete. 
Can I complete this course to get a boat licence?
Yes! By completing the course, you will receive an Australian Sailing Powerboat certificate of proficiency that you can take to the RMS to get your NSW boat licence.
