Martyn Hawkins , RSC's Vice Commodore and RYA Training Principal says:
"For a while now RSC's Trojans has been a great way for younger members to have fun at the club and to join their friends on the water.
Of course, that's going to continue when we can get back to sailing but now we'll be a part of the RYA's great OnBoard programme too!
We'll also continue to offer training from the RYA's Youth Sailing Scheme so that even more young people in the area can benefit from these fantastic qualifications.
We look forward to working closely with the RYA's OnBoard team to promote, encourage and develop young people's use of the club and its water."
It's a really successful programme which helps to make sailing and windsurfing easier to access for 8-18 year olds..
Hannah Cockle, RYA OnBoard Operations Officer, comments:
“It’s great to welcome Rickmansworth Sailing Club to the OnBoard programme.
Getting out on the water has a huge amount of benefits, no matter what your age, background or ability.
We look forward to working with them and the local community in the future to get as many people as possible enjoying our great sport.”
