Since the launch of the TY Sailing Programme in September, our TY students have been busy. Below is an overview of what’s done and what activities and courses are left to do.
The most important objective of the programme is to build personal and social confidence in our TY teenagers, allow them try out various water activities and for many, to gain accreditations towards their Sailing Instructors certification.
Particular credit goes to the Sailing Managers & Club Administrators in RIYC, NYC and RSGYC, and the team at Irish Offshore sailing for their advice and management of club based courses: Ronan Adams, Karin Ryan, Kevin Leonard, Mark McGibney, Rónán Ó Siochrú and Olivier Prouveur.
Thank you also to Derval Cummins NYC who has done huge work on the TY Committee and is now finishing up due to commitments. Extra special thanks to Marc Little, whose passion ensures the best TY Programme is run year after year, even when none of his own children are involved!
