Congratulations to our cadets on their successful RYA Dinghy Instructor Course!

Madeleine Bryan, Hugo Eaton-Baudains, Harry Newton, Tom Oliver, Alex Wilson, Craig Windridge (BSC).
The Cadets were very fortunate to have in HBSC member Laurie Dengate an excellent RYA coach for the five day course. This followed two prerequisite training and practical assessment days which Laurie also directed in November and December. The standard was set high, the candidates worked tremendously hard throughout the week, generally not finishing until 7.30 pm, and were assessed on the final day by RYA development officer Sam Rowe. At the young age of 16-17 their success, individually and as a team, is particularly impressive.
One of the six candidates is a Broadstairs SC Cadet. Graham Silsbury, BSC Principal has written, "We are thrilled with Craig's success. Thanks to WYC . . .for running the DI course and I'm delighted we have got this group of young DI's in our sailing area. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned."
