DISCOVER POWERBOATING Your ticket to powerboating


Irish Sailing Discover Powerboating

Powerboats, speedboats and RIBs offer a fast, exciting and versatile way of getting into boating. FEELGOOD ACTIVITIES can offer you the opportunity to take your first steps, during the Discover Powerboating experience you'll learn how to steer a powerboat and experience the thrill of being at the helm.

The Fun Part

There is nothing like piloting a powerboat for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how much they want to learn more. The biggest challenge for FEELGOOD ACTIVITIES is coaxing Discover Powerboating participants back off the water when the program is over. The fun part? It's all fun! Plus, you can sign up for our Introduction to Powerboating course afterwards if you want to.

What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to pilot under the direct supervision of an Irish Sailing Powerboat Instructor. You will:

  • Learn what safety clothing to wear and why we wear it.
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your introduction course when you take the next step.

The Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Powerboating experience. In addition, we recommend warm clothing and, as we are on the water, you may get wet, we recommend some waterproof clothes against splashes and rain. 

The Learning Materials You Need To Bring

Just your willingness and undivided attention.


To take participate in the Discover Powerboating program you must be at least 12 years old.
