What clothing should I bring?
Normal casual wear is sufficient, however as you could get slightly wet we advise you not to wear jeans as they take long to dry. During the launch and recovery of the boat you will have to stand knee high in the water and we recommend to bring a spare set of socks and shoes. Other items: towel, hat, sunglasses, warm jumper.

Certificate of Competence

To drive a powerboat, jet ski or waterscooter in the Netherlands and most European countries, you will need a licence. Our RYA courses provide the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat or Personal Watercraft and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence.

Who is it for?

The powerboat courses are primarily for those using open powered craft such as RIBs and sportsboats, and also for the professional open boat skipper who is required to prove their competence or provide certification for work.

The course

During the course we will focus on low speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planing speed. You will also learn the basics of the Rules and Regulations and navigation on high speed. MOSS Sailing is the only RYA training centre in the Netherlands to provide RYA sailing courses as well as RYA powerboat training.
