Congratulations to Rainer, Gabi, David, Cathy, Mark, Paul, Joe, Amea, Anneliese and Brian: the first ever graduates of an official RYA Level 2 training course at Croydon Sailing Club!
After gaining recognition as an RYA Training Centre last year, instructors Denis and Neil, with senior instructor Simon Harding, put 10 CSC members through their paces over the May bank holiday weekend, refining the techniques they learned at Level 1 and teaching useful new skills including picking up a bouey (tying your dinghy to a fixed object), coming alongside (e.g. parking next to the safety boat) and man overboard (rescuing a person or object from the lake).
It was fantastic to see the amazing progression over the two-day course and a great weekend had by all.
