After almost two years of preparation we have been awarded Volvo RYA Champion Club status. The award will provide a basis upon which our Junior and Youth sections can develop and the young sailors involved will benefit from the programmes available from the Volvo Champion scheme. I’d like to thank all those Club members who’ve helped us to secure this prestigious status, especially Mike Fairlamb who has worked particularly hard.
In addition to the Youth development advantages the VCC status will provide us with free RYA coaching, annual volunteer grants, and many other benefits. This, together with the existing training and Youth Squad initiatives, will help to secure the future of our Club for generations to come.
