We rely heavily on our training team to deliver the many courses which you want as members. All our Instructors are volunteers and now we are offering you the chance to join in and develop the skills to become a member of the team by attending our Helper and Assistant Instructor Day on Saturday 21st April. The day will start at 9.30 am and is free of charge and open to members 14 years and over. During the day you will practice rigging and launching the club dinghies, learn how sailing is taught and how you can best help the instructors, find out where everything is kept and if you want, get out on the water for a sail in the training dinghies. Participants are asked to book online via the club website so we know how many people to expect.
If you want to work towards achieving your Assistant Instructor award, you need to attend this day and then help out for a further 2 days. The Assistant Instructor certificate awarded by Ripon Sailing Club is an RYA qualification, valid for 5 years and can only be used at our club. The AI qualification is a great way to demonstrate skill development and volunteering for anyone considering doing their D of E and is also a really good learning experience for those going on to take their Dinghy Instructor qualification.
If you can't make the day on 21st April but would still like to help at our courses, please let Dianne know and please route any questions about the 21 April event to Dianne too via firstname.lastname@example.org
