Why choose Stormforce Coaching for this course?:
Traditionally, an RYA Instructor would train as an Advanced Dinghy Instructor in the first instance, before endorsing his/her qualification for teaching keelboating. As a specialised keelboat centre, we recognise that not all keelboat Instructors want to train with dinghies and it can therefore be more beneficial for Keelboat Instructors to develop their skills within the type of craft they will be teaching. We do not know of any other centre in the world that offers this training. This is a specialist course we devised (with the RYA's agreement) in response to the need we identified.
