Perfect for adrenaline-junkies, this experience is wet, wild and extremely fast! You’ll take to the waves at the controls of the Thunderbolt, a catamaran powered by a high performance 90hp outboard. Possessing blisteringly fast acceleration, this craft is one of the quickest cornering boats in the UK. Your instructor will ensure that you make the most of your time at the controls, taking both you and the Thunderbolt to the limit.
Your experience begins with a safety briefing and an introduction to the boat. Once changed into the racing team kit and safety gear, you board the Thunderbolt with an experienced instructor who runs through driving procedure to help prepare you for the high adrenaline action. You’ll learn cornering and racing technique, wave jumping and high speed take-offs before tackling the challenging, high speed, offshore circuit. Here you will apply your new boating skills in a race against the clock to find the ‘aquastig’ of the year. During debrief you will be given a photograph to remember the day.
