Since 2018 Rib School Scheveningen has started providing RYA Powerboating courses on expedition vessels sailing to both Antarctica and Arctica. The increasing demand to certify personnel on expedition vessels with the RYA Powerboat Level 2 was the immediate reason for this.
Our International Powerboating School at Scheveningen was founded in 2009. We have taught in recent years to the Beach Patrol (National Police), Traffic Center / Port Services, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and many private individuals, including expats, refugee workers, deckhands on super-yachts and also expedition employees.
We know from personal experience what you can expect. To provide a training for expedition employees under similar circumstances we have purchased an identical Zodiac mil pro MK V with Yamaha engine (tiller steering and hydraulic trim).
The steering and boating characteristics with a tiller are slightly different than on a rib with a steering wheel and a throttle. We have put together a training where we teach you to be able to work as a certified Zodiac driver on an expedition ship sailing in the polar regions.
