Fabulous, patient, positive, highly organised and professional training for Power Boat 2 course in Poole Harbour. Lots of boat time, and plenty visual classroom props helped master new found skill of map plotting harbour navigation! Feeling much more confident and knowledgeable now! Thank you for a great couple of days! 🙂

I have just completed my RYA Level 2 powerboat course and all I can say is wow!! Emily (our lovely tutor) is an amazingly calm lady with a boatful of knowledge. I had so much fun and learnt so much, coming away feeling rather smug and confident with my new found boat handling skills. I would like to say a very big thank you to Her and also Noel, for the tick off of my bucket list, roll on the 19th for my jet ski course. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Went on a two day Power Boat Handling course in November and thoroughly enjoyed it. The standard of instruction was excellent, easygoing and thorough, more enjoyable than some holidays I've been on. The one day radio course I attend which was offered for free was great. Together they have given me the essential grounding to confidentially power boat on rivers, lakes or the coast.

An excellent couple of days spent with the team doing our L2 training. Emily was our instructor for the two days and had the perfect teaching style to exude her calm manner on pupils whilst training us to be more comfortable on our boats. We never felt under pressure despite our lack of skill! Would highly recommend the team at Get Lost Powerboat to anyone, you won't regret it.

I completed the Powerboat Level 2, which was a fabulous course; very practical; very enjoyable and thorough. The organisation is well run and very well equipped providing all the additional clothing to keep you warm and comfortable whilst on the Rib. I was really impressed by Noel. He is clearly very competent and knowledgeable and a fab trainer! I can’t recommend this organisation enough!

Have just completed my level 2 Powerboat course with Get lost Power Boat training,and could not be more happier.Yes I could of gone with another company nearer to me,but what attracted me was the great level of communication and information I received from beginning to end of my course.The added bonus being given the VHF radio course free with this course.From the moment I entered the training facility I was greeted and welcomed by the school principle Noel.I was then introduced to my instructor Nathan.Although very young,his depth of Knowledge and skill in instruction was amazing.Right from the off he made you feel relaxed and gave plenty of encouragement all through the two days of training.Everything was explained in such a way was easy to understand.In no way could I find fault with any part of the course,nor would I want to.I have now booked to attend my VHF radio course and also Essential Navigation course,with the notion to doing my Intermediate Powerboat course in the near future.Would recommend them to anyone wanting to take up power boating or for those looking for knowledge on other aspects of sailing.A big thank you to all the team for an amazing experience.
