RYA Powerboat Training Centre on the Essex coast

Our RYA Training Centre at Bradwell Waterside, on the picturesque River Blackwater Estuary, is the perfect spot to hone your skills. Take to the water in our commercially licensed, high speed Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) and learn from our experienced and knowledgeable instructors.

While we can’t predict the unexpected, we can prepare you for it. From sheltered inshore waters to choppier tidal estuaries, we’ll ensure your skills are revved up and ready to go.
