Autumn is the ideal time to get ahead of the game in terms of your instructor training requirements for the 2019 season. The water is relatively warm, air temperatures aren’t generally too bad and if this year taught us nothing else spring can be very unpredictable with Beasts from the East lurking about.

Already the end of the summer season has seen a very positive increase in the number of pre-entry assessments completed along with several instructor courses being run. This continues with a full schedule of Dinghy Instructor courses being organised around the country over the October mid-term, details of which can be found HERE.
