Throughout the year we schedule events that either grow your social network within the Powerboat Club or that are designed to take your boating skills further.
Keep an eye on our events below and be sure to book on early to anything that takes your fancy.
What’s on offer?
Learn to drive a motor cruiser at Costa Blanca Sailing – our Alicante sea school.
Noel, the principal of Get Lost Powerboat Training, is the chief instructor for Costa Blanca Sailing. He is responsible for overseeing their sailing and motor cruising training standards as well as teaching their Yachtmaster candidates.
We’ve teamed up with the school in Alicante to offer our UK customers the opportunity to train with Noel in the sunshine.
The package includes the required RYA Day Skipper theory course at our school in Poole. Followed by the four day practical training course in Alicante. We will be using the Jeanneau 36 Prestige shown in the video.
We only have a total of 5 places to offer on each course.
Theory course dates in Poole
September over two weekends – 8th, 9th, 10th then 16th & 17th
Practical course dates in Alicante
September 19th to 22nd – (return flights Bournemouth/Alicante on the 18th & 23rd)
The first part of your training is the 5 day RYA DaySkipper theory course. This course will teach you all about big boat safety and how to plan a passage anywhere in the world. We run these courses at our base in Poole and at the end of the course you will have all the knowledge you need to enjoy boating on the sunny Costa Blanca in Spain.

The second part of your training is carried out on the motor cruiser at Costa Blanca Sailing Sea School in Alicante. We have arranged the course dates so that you can fly out from Bournemouth airport the day before your practical course begins. Your return flight is on the day after your course finishes.
During the course we will learn all about handling and mooring a motor cruiser. We’ll stop at anchor and spend some time swimming. We will visit new places and follow our own passage plans. We’ll run a night passage and use the GPS and RADAR. Then we will celebrate successful completion of the course by heading out for a team meal on the final night.
Finally, you will receive the RYA Day Skipper Motor qualification and be able to drive a motor boat! This will allow you to charter motor cruisers up to 24 metres in length.
The package price below includes the theory and practical courses only. Extras are your flights, hotels and dinners while we are away. We would recommend the Hotel Melia as it’s right by the marina and close to the beach but there are several boutique hotels to choose from in Alicante.
