Over the past month, the Club has offered several courses for members to attain new skills and qualifications. On the 11 July, seven of our sailors and parents participated in the Club Race Officer course conducted by the Club’s Race Management Officer, Rob Ridley. One of the Dinghy and Youth committee parents, Sophie Hunt said the course was very informative and she looks forward to practicing her skills on the race course.
Since then we have also had a Safety Boat Operator’s Course and a Start Powerboating Course. Thanks to Izzy for being a good sport on the Safety Boat Operator Course. She volunteered to be rescued – although she did giggle a lot when she was meant to be unconscious. The aim of this course is to build our Club’s capacity within the membership base, to provide on water safety support for our dinghy sailors.
