Riding Personal Watercraft is great fun, but the more modern craft are getting VERY powerful & fast. As a new/ inexperienced rider you can get yourself into difficulty, due to lack of experience. This can not only lead to you not enjoying your new hobby, but can also pose a risk to your safety.
The Royal Yachting Association offer a Personal Watercraft Proficiency Course, which equips you with the knowledge and skills to safely ride a Jetski/Watercraft & some basic introduction into looking after your watercraft correctly.
