TAMESIS gains approval for RYA RACE TRAINING

Whilst a good fleet of club boats was out on Sunday 22nd May for the Tamesis Spring Regatta a smaller group of boats was active in a nearby part of the river under the watchful eye of RYA Development Officer Ben Kimbell, taking Tamesis Chief Sailing Instructor Eric Finlayson and Sailing Instructor colleague Malcolm Warner through their paces to qualify to teach racing skills at Tamesis Club’s RYA Recognised Training Centre. Alan Green, Tamesis RYA Centre Principal said: “Eric and his team of instructors have been doing a great job in sailing instruction and have expanded their role to include race training. We all look forward to this part of our activity increasing in the coming year and helping to promote and sustain the club’s great reputation in developing the sport of competitive sailing. Congratulations to Eric and Team!”
