Powerboat Training

The club is an RYA approved Powerboating Centre and runs courses for both the general public and club members wanting to improve their skills.

Driving a powerboat is a great feeling and is an essential part of supporting our sport. Appropriate training ensures that powerboat drivers, their passengers and other water users feel confident and safe. FFSC offers powerboat courses in tidal conditions in the river and at sea.
