SeaWake Powerboat Training
Seawake Powerboat Training is based in North Wales. We train from two iconic sites, Menai Bridge and Conwy Marina, Conwy. Menai Bridge offers generally sheltered waters ideal for training. Our classroom is minutes from the pier at Menai Bridge.
For close quarter work we also use Dinorwic Marina at Felinheli where we have two berths. Conwy Quays Marina is pretty unique - set against the stunning backdrop of the Snowdonia Mountains and historic Conwy the marina offers access to both Conwy River as well as the Menai Straits and beyond. The marina maintains a depth of 3m so even at low tide we can still be out on the water training.
Our boats can access the Menai Strait on most states of the tide - we are only restricted for an hour either side of low water springs - but we make allowances for this by either being out on the water or in the class room!.
What makes a Seawake Power Boat Course different - it's our team - We are all enthusiastic Power Boaters, we have a vast amount of experience - mostly good; our office team have been on all our courses and drive our boats regularly. But even more importantly our instructors, while perhaps on the older side, have a huge amount of experience, they don't blind or confuse you with nautical terms, they use the KISS approach (Keep It Simple Stupid!).
Their relaxed approach puts you at ease straight away. While each course is different we also realise that you want to be on the boats as much as possible. Class room activities for the RYA Powerboat levels 1 and 2 are kept to a minimum and we get as much use as we can from the boats.
