The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is the national body for all forms of boating including RIBs. The boat will be used for training courses which will teach users how to use their RIB responsibly and how to get the most out of your boat as well as picking up useful tips which can be used in different scenarios. The training courses vary in length and offer different abilities as you advance through the ranks. The courses start by giving users a basic understanding of boating and then progress to allow users to navigate the boat through coastal passages through day and night.
