I had some one to one tuition on my boat which is a single engine shaft drive as l was stuggling to manoeuvre the boat in tight spaces and parking etc. Noel met me at the boat and proceeded to teach me some nice little tricks that l just need to practice more.(learned so much in the 1st hour)😁 If anyone is needing some extra tuition in a similar situation l can highly recommend Noel from Get Lost Powerboat Training.

I have now completed my Powerboat Level 2 course, VHF Radio course, and Essential Navigation. I am so glad that I booked these courses with Get Lost Powerboat training, I cannot fault one single thing about this company and what they provide. I had the best fun on these courses, whilst learning so much. I now feel completely confident plotting routes, and being at sea. Noel and his team at Get Lost Powerboat training are professional, explain things so clearly, make the courses fun, and above all ensure you understand and feel confident every step of the way. If you’re looking for someone to provide these courses, look no further, they are ace.

Thank you so much for a very informative and enjoyable powerboat level 2 course, I cannot recommend Get Lost Powerboat Training enough. Included with this course was a free vhf marine radio course, which also exceeded expectations. Don’t hesitate to book with this outstanding company! Extremely pleased with both courses I have attended so far. I have now booked the 2 day essential navigation course too, which I am really looking forward to.

Completed my level 2 powerboat license here and enjoyed every aspect of it. Noel was a very experienced friendly guy and was passionate about equipping me with the important techniques of power boating. I 100% recommend this 2 day course to anyone who is slightly interested or loves the thrill of boating. You won’t regret it. 🙂

Get lost boating training is a very professional and welcoming boating school, they offer many courses for all of your boating needs. I have done the level 2 powerboating course that was brilliant fun and have learned so much over the 2 days I will confidently be able to go out on a powerboat up to 10m length anywhere I like including spain where I will be renting boats. I am now doing the VHF radio course , The navigation course and the first aid course. Highly recommended, great value for money and a very friendly instructor.

Amazing RYA Power Boat Level 2 course After having river boats, we decided to take the plunge and buy a boat suitable for the sea. This was a huge decision, having no experience of boating at sea! We decided to locate the boat in Poole harbour, where we researched an appropriate course, and thought the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course would be a perfect introduction. Get Lost Power Boat Training had good reviews, so we booked the 2 day course with them, having the training on our own boat (myself, my partner, and 15 year old son). Well, I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Noel, our instructor, was extremely knowledgeable and professional, and also made the course so much fun. I initially felt completely out of my comfort zone, yet Noel made me feel at ease, he was so friendly and very patient. I learnt so much in the 2 days, and quickly felt very confident handling our boat. I would highly recommend Get Lost Power Boat Training, the course is outstanding. I now feel confident at sea, thanks to our amazing instructor Noel. I have booked the VHF Marine Radio Course (that comes free with the Powerboat level 2 course) and the Essential Navigation course, and cannot wait to learn more.

Powerboat Level 2 Course was run by James who did great job getting me and my better half through the training. It had a good balance between theory and hands on exercises on water both in and outside Poole Harbour. It was very professional with James executting the course in a relaxed and friendly manner, helping to put nerves at ease. We had a great couple of days and would thoroughly recommend the company.

Excellent !! We have completed our Powerboat level 2 and VHF course and have enjoyed every bit of the training , Noel and his team are a very friendly and professional . Can't believe how much my partner and I have learnt on doing this course and how excited we are on looking to buying our first Rib boat. This was our first time visiting Poole and we both agree what a great place to learn, so happy we found Noel and his team to learn with. So good that we are thinking in the spring to go back and do the intermediate course. Anyone looking to do there level 2 this is the place to do it , you wont be disappointed. So a big thank you to Noel and his team. Poole we will be back !! Jim & Claire

Excellent training at Get Lost Power Boat Training Completed my PB2 and VHF radio course with Noel and the team. Excellent instructors who made the course fun as well as challenging to ensure we gained the appropriate skills to be able to handle a 10m boat with confidence. Very much looking forward to putting all of that into practice and hope to follow up at Get Lost Power Boat Training. Highly recommend the school to anyone thinking about buying renting boats.

Book all the courses they have!! I achieved my Day Skipper Theory, Yachtmaster theory, Intermediate and Advanced Powerboat courses all with Get Lost Powerboat Training and I can't sing their praises enough! I set out to do my PB2 and wanted a bit of theory knowledge before starting the next season as a deckhand. I enjoyed each course so much I seem to be addicted! Both boats are new and really smart as well as the waterproof gear they lend for the course. They have taken great covid measures and even gave a free face buff to take away which is super useful as well as a nice momento. The instructors deliver each course in such a fun and interactive way, I felt they really understood that everyone has a different speed or way of learning and were exceptional at catering to the needs of each individual. Get Lost Powerboat Training have got me to a point where I have excelled and exceeded my expectations. Thank you very much Noel and the team 🙂 P. S Stunning location to learn 👌🏻

GREAT location to learn power-boating at all levels What a GREAT location to learn power-boating at all levels, with GREAT instructors and first class facilities and a perfect location to enjoy an evening meal on the Quay after a day at speed through the water. Many thanks to GLPBT for a superbly run Intermediate course during this very difficult time!

Great company to work with I recently took my RYA Powerboat Level 2 with Get Lost Powerboating and pleased that i passed the course, which was thanks to Louis's great teaching methods and rapport that he builds with his students. I had 2 really good days down in Poole with Get Lost Powerboating, and looking forward to continuing my journey with you. I would definitely recommend Noel and his staff to family and friends wanting to get into boating in general. Thanks again!
