Dinghy Sailing Permit Assessment

We offer Dinghy Sailing Permit Assessments for those with RYA Level 2 skills and upwards.  RYA certificates are not necessary, but you do need to sail to at least that standard. 

 

At Level 2 standard the Permit would usually be to lead one Sailing Dinghy on Inland B1 water in the UK.  Higher level sailing skills and coastal endorsements or other qualifications can result in a permit covering more exposed waters and RYA Instructor qualified individuals can achieve higher level permits to lead multiple dinghies.

 

Dinghy Sailing Permit Assessments are available at various times during the year at Wharfedale Scout Sailing Centre by arrangement.  Permit Assessments can also be carried out as part of Intermediate and Advanced Sailing Courses.

 

For further details please visit our Bookings page confirming your position in Scouts/Guides, age, relevant experience and qualifications, and the purposes for which you need the Activity Permit.

 

Powerboating Permit Assessment

We offer Powerboating Permit Assessments on Open Planing Powerboats periodically at REVA.

RYA certificates are not necessary, but the assessments are for experienced powerboat drivers who can drive a powerboat to the standard of the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course and demonstrate the RYA techniques and methods.  These assessments will also include the RYA Level 2 National Powerboat Certificate and will follow the RYA direct assessment procedure.  (Page 18 of the current RYA Powerboat Logbook G20 (August 2014).

 

The Activity Permit will be to “lead as helm one Open Planing Powerboat on Inland B2 Waters in the UK in daylight hours”.  Powerboat Instructors and those with other qualifications such as the RYA Advanced Powerboat Day and Night Course can be assessed at a higher level appropriate to their skills and experience.

Bellboating Permit Assessment

We offer Bellboating Permit Assessments for adult members of the Scout Association for those who take part in other water activities.  This usually involves 1-2 hours of theory and two sessions afloat.  It can be accomplished in a short day or over several evenings.

Those who do not take part in other water activities should attend a full one day permit training and assessment course.  Such courses are arranged when there are sufficient applicants to enable a course to run (6).

Kayaking, Canoeing and Traditional Rafting Permit Assessment

A member of WSSC is a County Assessor for these activities.

A one day permit assessment course for Traditional Rafting can be arranged when there are sufficient applicants to enable a course to run (6).  The key pre-requisite is to be competent to use a safety boat (which need not be powered) to an appropriate standard.  A personal or lead permit in the watercraft is the usual standard accepted.

 

Kayaking and Canoeing (B1) permits can be assessed for individuals.  The expectation is that an individual will have the technical and group leading skills of a newly qualified British Canoeing Coach.  (For example, the ability to carry out multiple types of rescue, to roll a kayak/self-rescue a canoe and to demonstrate good group control).
