NSA TRAINING UPDATE
Monday 4th November 2019

Thanks to the support of the Mill Reef Foundation, we have been able, this summer, to send students to the UKSA in Cowes, UK. They are all qualified Dinghy Sailing Instructors and thanks to Ondeck Maritime Training - have all passed the Day Skipper Theory course after which they all qualified as Day Skippers on the practical training course in the UK.

Over the coming weeks, they will all complete the STCW course which is a pre-requisite for anyone wishing to work on a commercial yacht. These qualifications will enable them to apply for positions on charter yachts and superyachts if they wish.

We are now identifying the next tranche of our students who are interested in gaining professional qualifications when they leave school in the next year or two – and hope to facilitate a Dinghy Sailing Instructors course next summer for 8/12 students aged 16 plus.

Our Sailing Manager, Sylvester Thomas has now returned from the UK where he completed a 7-week Sailing Centre Management course and will now take over more responsibility for the day-to-day management of the sailing programmes at the Academy.

Joshua Daniels, who gained his Day Skipper qualification last year, went back to UK in July and is now a Senior Dinghy Instructor as well as a qualified Coastal Skipper. He will be working full time at the Academy as the Deputy Sailing Manager.
