Newly qualified DIs and AIs at Staunton!


Congratulations and well done to our newly qualified RYA Dinghy Instructors (DIs) and Assistant Instructors (AIs).

A very big thank you to the highly regarded Kev O'Brien who has spent the last week putting seven people through their paces as they worked to gain new qualifications and develop their teaching techniques. A full week of, on and off the water training saw Ethan Lowing, Jake O'Brien and Mark O'Donnell achieve their DIs, whilst Kamran Ewbank, Oliver Hamilton, Amy Nugent and Amy Thompson have gained their AI qualifications.

The team of DIs and AIs trained in both double and single handed dinghies and also learnt the skills required to provide excellent instructing in Staunton Harold Sailability Trust's Hansa dinghies.

Watch out for these new instructors as they take up training opportunities at the club - and thank you in advance to them, for their future contribution towards training our current and future members.
