Powerboat Courses

Start Powerboating with Gosford Sailing Club!

Gosford Sailing Club offers Yachting Australia accredited ‘Start Powerboating’ Courses for people interested in owning and/or being in charge of a recreational powerboat! The Start Powerboating Program introduces skills ranging from practical driving skills, trip planning, boat maintenance, safety equipment, to the correct procedure of dealing with emergency situations. The lower age limit for training is 12 years old, however, Yachting Australia recommends anyone under the age of 16 to be under the supervision of an adult when operating a powerboat. Following this course you will have sufficient skills and knowledge to safely skipper a small powerboat. You will also receive a Start Powerboating Certificate.

The course at Gosford Sailing Club will run over a period of 2 days. This will cover both theory and practical sessions, for a total course time of 12 hours.
