The Wind Project is new for 2020 and will initially have four main objectives to it, all focused on delivering Sailing sessions to our local community.
RYA OnBoard Scheme for Local Schools
We’ll see a minimum of 16 pupils from a number of our local Schools participate enjoying six Sailing sessions on the water. Sailing provides lots of opportunities for schools to link the curriculum with practical experiences in subjects like Maths, Physics, PE, Science and Geography.
RYA OnBoard Club
The creation of a Club will enable those pupils who have taken part in our scheme for schools, to continue with their learning at weekends.
RYA OnBoard Youth Development
We’ll be able to offer some local teenagers who are already at Stage 3 / racing level, to then further develop their skills and aim to become Instructors at the age of 16. Creating employment opportunities for Assistant and qualified Dinghy Instructors.
Regular RYA Sailability Sessions
These regular sailing sessions will be available for people with disabilities, no matter what their age or ability, to help them learn a new skill, experience freedom on the water and enjoy a great social life.
