Boat School

The Boat School is located to the North East of the Gant Bridge. It's always open from when you have access to the desert, so you can head over there whenever you have time.

The Boat School requires 5 small objectives to be completed as best as possible. You will need to pass the set times and scores shown before every objective in order to complete the school, however getting a better rating will allow you to unlock special vehicles. This guide will try to explain the best techniques to get Gold on all of the objectives, because everyone knows that if you can get gold, you can get bronze easier!

Completing all of the objectives with at least Bronze will unlock the Marquis.
Completing all of the objectives with at least Silver will unlock the Squalo.
Completing all of the objectives with at least Gold will unlock the Jetmax.


Boat School

Basic Seamanship
Description
Hold X to throttle forward and bring the boat to rest within the parallel buoys region.

Vehicle Given
Coastguard

Tactics
Hold X for 6 seconds, then release it and hold Square. You should come to a stop in the middle of the buoys, but you may need to try a few times as you need to get less than 9.6 seconds for gold.

Gold Criteria
Finish Time: Less Than 9.6 Seconds (Roughly)
Damage Penalty: 0:00
Overall Time: Less Than 9.6 Seconds (Roughly)


Plot A Course
Description
Navigate through each pair of buoys. Throttle with X and use the left analog stick to steer.

Vehicle Given
Coastguard

Tactics
Hold X and drive through each of the double buoys which will be to your right every time. You can hold R1 to turn a bit sharper, but I'd just recommend staying to the inside of the buoys and even out the boat so you're always heading straight for the next lot. The last two will require a sharp ish turn, but it should definitely be possible to do in less than 30 seconds.

Gold Criteria
Finish Time: Less Than 30 Seconds (Roughly)
Damage Penalty: 0:00
Overall Time: Less Than 30 Seconds (Roughly)


Fresh Slalom
Description
Navigate through the center of each pair of buoys in as quick a time as possible.

Vehicle Given
Dinghy

Tactics
Similar to the last objective, this requires you to make your way through a course of buoys as quickly as possible. The first few can be done normally, just make sure you start turning just before you get there and you'll cut through it saving a few seconds, but about half way around you'll need to use an R1 turn to keep up the speed. Follow the track all of the way around and speed through the last two buoys to complete the course.

Gold Criteria
Finish Time: Less Than 80 Seconds (Roughly)
Damage Penalty: 0:00
Overall Time: Less Than 80 Seconds (Roughly)


Flying Fish
Description
Power towards the jump ramp and land within the parallel buoys to register a valid jump.

Vehicle Given
Vortex

Tactics
From the start, make your way to the right and head towards the bridge. Just before you get there, turn around and speed towards the yellow blips on your radar. Holding the left analog stick forward slightly seems to work the same way as a bike and give you a slight speed boost. Drive into the ramp, then hold down on the analog stick and you'll jump further. You need 55M + for Bronze, and around 69M for Gold.

Gold Criteria
Jump Distance: 55M Or Higher


Land, Sea And Air
Description
Navigate through the center of each pair of buoys in as quick a time as possible.

Vehicle Given
Vortex

Tactics
The course is pretty simple, but you need to go almost as fast as humanly possible to get Gold, so you should use the techniques you learned in the previous objectives in order to get through the buoys as quickly as possible. Firstly use your radar to see where the current and next buoys are, they sort of dot around all over the place, so be prepared for them. Remember to use R1 to turn sharply, and remember to keep to the inside of the buoy and start making the turn before you get to it and you should be able to get around in under 130 seconds for Gold.

Gold Criteria
Finish Time: Less Than 130 Seconds
Damage Penalty: 0:00
Overall Time: Less Than 130 Seconds.
