Scout Power Coxswain Activity Badge

Master the waterways on your chosen craft and have fun while you're doing it.

How to earn the badge:

If you hold The Scout Association’s Personal or Leadership Activity Permit for Power Boating or Personal Watercraft (Jet Ski), a Leadership Permit for Narrow Boating or Motor Cruising or the RYA Level 2 Powerboat Award, you automatically gain this badge.

You can complete the steps using a powerboat, narrow boat, motor cruiser or on a personal watercraft.

If not, here’s what you need to do:

  • Choose and identify the boat you will use.
  • Choose the waters you will visit.
  • Identify the features and hazards of this water.
  • Learn what the rules are for boating on the water you’re using.
  • Wear the proper clothing and make sure you have the correct equipment for your craft.

Complete the following steps under proper supervision:

  • Locate the engine and know how to start and stop it safely.
  • Take part in a man overboard drill.
  • Launch and recover your craft (if that’s possible) and come alongside. Moor and berth your craft.
  • Control the speed and direction of your craft to steer around a course or on a journey.

! Young people must be appropriately supervised by an activity permit holder or a qualified external instructor. You must follow the activity rules in the Policy and Organisation Rules. Find out more at www.scouts.org.uk/a-z
