Two members qualify as new PB Instructors

Two more MVS members have qualified as Level 2 Powerboat Instructors after a 3 day course held at Powerboat Training UK in Poole.  (22nd – 24th June 2012).

They are DHoU Andy Cox who is a member of the Poole Unit and Martyn Sharp who is the RVO for the Solent area. Martyn has additionally qualified as a Safety Boat Instructor.

The training was a mixture of classroom and afloat training which took place in Poole Harbour. The trainees used an Avon RIB called ‘Nova’ and a Ribcraft called ‘Bumble Bee’ in the Holes Bay and the RoRo turning areas. The weather remained overcast with some slight showers and strong winds which made the boat handling exercises interesting.

Both Andy and Martyn enjoyed the course and now look forward to using their new qualifications within the MVS.
