Level 2 - National Powerboat Certificate

'Really enjoyed the power boat course. Oscar was a great instructor - he was friendly and helpful and delivered the course in a fun manner. The small number on the course was brilliant as we got loads of time to practice every skill. Great set up, great facilities, look forward to visiting again. Cheers'
