Our Apprentice Instructors have set off to a flying start, just 10 days into their 5 week training and already they have sailed Picos, Lasers, a 2000 and even a Catamaran. They have all achieved their RYA Level 1 & 2 Sailing certificates. This week they are trying their hand at windsurfing and powerboating.
Last week they had their first attempt at delivering a presentation to a group of sailing students - and they were all amazing! After lots of study and preparation the presentations were really great! We had Evan with 'Points of Sail', Reece with 'Wind & Weather', Ewan with 'Man Over Board' and James with 'Basic Aerodynamic Theory'. Very well done to all of them, if they carry on working so hard they are sure to graduate as excellent instructors!
It's great to see the guys enjoying watersports so much and becoming an integral part of our Horizon Team. Keep an eye on our facebook page for more updates and photos of their progress. Just 3 weeks left and we'll have some brand new RYA instructors on our team!
