Designed for deck crew on board superyachts, the Tender Operators Course follows on from skills taught at RYA Powerboat Level 2. The course is specifically aimed at those who are likely to be driving guests ashore from an anchored superyacht by day and evening onboard the yacht’s tender. There is an emphasis on navigation skills and techniques for short ship-to-shore transfers by day and at night. Candidates get plenty of time and to practice, working with a crew member and operating short-handed and should gain confidence in their ability to manoeuvre a powerboat smoothly.
Candidates should be competent to the standard of RYA Powerboat Level 2 with coastal endorsement. It is strongly recommended that candidates hold a first aid and VHF/SRC operator’s certificateEquipment and Kit InformationDaily Schedule
