On the weekend of the 15th and 16th October 2016 our brand-new Young Leaders Programme started with 6 young people from the local area taking part. The programme is aimed at developing the young sailors' abilities on and off the water to put them on the pathway to becoming RYA instructors. Over the course of 6 months they will be spending 1 weekend per month at the centre to undertake this training, with the outcome of them becoming RYA Assistant Instructors at the centre, where they will be able to help out on sessions and gain experience in a role of responsibility.

The Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre celebrated its second birthday on Saturday by inviting people from the local community to join in activities such as: free sailing tasters, fossil hunting and stone carving.
More than 300 people aged 5+ took advantage of the light winds and sunshine and got out on the water for a sailing taster, many of which were completely new to the sport. Families and friends enjoyed sailing together and there were lots of smiles as they returned to shore.

A fantastic start to the season down at the Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre with our very first RYA Senior Instructor Course taking place this half-term. We are excited to welcome instructors from across the country to come and train at the world-class facilities we have to offer on site at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. Over the course of 4 days they will learn how to become on-the-water and off-the-water managers, how to supervise, train and look after their team of instructors to run successful RYA sailing courses.
