Since being lucky enough to raise the funds to start Horizon Watersports, it really has been full speed ahead for all involved. With the aim of opening our doors, donning our flipflops and hoisting our sails in May this year, things have to happen quickly. We are confident we'll get there, everything is well on track and we just can not wait!
Steve, our Overseas Director and beach manager, is busy choosing all the great toys we'll have in resort. The latest additions to the list are a great Windsup from the Red Paddle Co and a couple of sweet little 1.5m and 2.0m windsurf sails for children. Plus, one very kind gentleman who saw our Crowdfunder project has just given us a Fireball sailing dinghy! The full kit list will be added to the website as soon as it's all finalised.
Megan has the very exciting job of finding our Apprentice Instructors. She is looking for enthusiastic, polite, well motivated 18 - 24 year olds with no previous experience of watersports. With the help of our friends at ESTEEM we're sure to find some great candidates ready for our interview day on the 23rd February.
Meanwhile, Aurora and I are tapping away on keyboards and enjoying a world of spreadsheets and stationary. To some that may sound a little dull, but to us it's wonderful. Every day we are getting a step closer to our opening day and so every day things get a little more exciting. We'll keep you posted on what the team are up to and then finally in May....we'll replace our spreadsheets and stationary for suncream and sailing!
