RYA Annual Inspection

Today we hosted Hermione Garner who performed the RYA Annual Inspection of Felpham SC Recognised Training Centre.

Herminone was very impressed with our Training set up at FSC and our 40 strong team of Instructors.

She reviewed the RTC Operating Procedures, performed a walk around inspection, and observed training in process during the Start Sailing, course from the RHIB.

She was particularly impressed by the one to one instructor/pupil ratio and on the rapid progress made by the students by performing “follow my leader” after just a morning on the water and joyrides in F5 yesterday.

As a result of this Inspection, I am pleased to inform you that Callum Aldous has been confirmed as Chief Instructor – Sailing and Ryan Breach has been confirmed as Chief Instructor – Power. These appoinments are a significant development of the Training Centre at FSC enabling us to respond to the rising demand for training (and let me have more time sailing my Aero!).

The result of the Inspection was a pass with two minor admin points being picked up for rectification over the next year.

This is a great result for FSC and huge thanks go to all of our Instructor team who make it such fun. Without their time and energy we could not deliver the excellent training that we do at FSC. If you see our Instructors around the Club, please give them a well done, and also thank Callum and Ryan for taking on their new roles.
