This programme aims to train 6 RYA Dinghy Instructors, 3 RYA Senior Dinghy Instructors and 6 RYA Level 2 race coaches to ensure that the club are able to provide sailing opportunities for young people from the local community at an affordable price.
The qualified instructors commit to train 60 local young people on a Tuesday evening in term time and assist with the delivery of a summer sailing camp involving an additional 60 young people. The instructor qualifications awarded to the individuals also enable them to seek meaningful employment during their summer holidays.
What was the money for?
Training volunteers to get RYA Instructor and Coach sailing qualification so that they can deliver weekly sail training sessions for 7+, from beginner to dinghy race coaching standard. These additional instructors will help increase numbers on the water.
