Dinghy Instructor’s Course Winter 2018

We are very proud that Tamesis is holding its first Dinghy Instructors’ Course, with the help of Queen Mary SC.

Six students – Ben Ramage, Ellen Schwartz, Garry Mallen, Harry Harris, Howard Thatcher and Lucian Schwartz under the tutelage of RYA Chief Instructor Simon Winkley have been learning the RYA method of teaching dinghy sailing.  They all had to undergo an intensive assessment, and are now most of the way through the  instructor’s course.  The strong stream forced them to go up to Queen Mary Reservoir today.  The final day is next Saturday.

Photos below are 1) Saturday 27th at Tamesis, 2) Sunday 28th at Queen Mary Reservoir, showing Lucian and Howard obviously having a great time.  Thanks to Alan Green and Ian Ramage for yesterdays photo and Simon Winkley for todays photo.
