Youths feel the power

Have your say

MORE than a dozen youngsters have enjoyed a stint at the wheel of a powerboat after a training day was held in South Queensferry.

The RYA Scotland Powerboating Committee invited 15 youngsters to the Longcraig Scout Centre, where they spent Sunday learning new skills under the guidance of six instructors.

Scott Roberts, chair of the committee, said: “Events like these help us show people how much fun powerboating can be and hopefully they take this experience back to their club committee and with our support can run a youth event.”
