The 2014 ISA Powerboat Challenge has been confirmed for Saturday 1st November at Lough Ree Yacht Club, commencing at 12 noon. There will be no regional events, just one national event compacted in to one day to make the competition more accessible to everyone nationally.
The challenge is based on many of the Safety Boat skills and is all water based, with teams consisting of adults and juniors. Clubs and centres are encouraged to use the event to help introduce training of powerboat skills amongst teens and adults alike.
This date has been chosen so clubs and centres can avail of the school Halloween half term to facilitate team training running up to the event.
Each team will be tested for skills such as man over board rescue, lee shore landing, vessel rescue and more. Each team member will take the helm for at least one of the challenges.
