Following the recent verdict in the Cheeki Rafiki trial on Friday 14 July, the RYA understandably suspended our recognition the same day. Without accreditations we are unable to trade and it is with great sadness that I have made the decision for the company to cease trading. We will not be taking any bookings and we are currently unable to deliver products already booked.
We are working with other industry members to try and relocate as many bookings as possible and are grateful for the good will being extended by some other sea schools who are rescuing some of our former clients. I realise there will be many clients concerned about courses or events they have booked, we will try to contact customers as and when we can but for the moment I apologise for the situation.
The phones are no longer manned, so calls will I am afraid go unanswered.
I am speaking with legal advisors and will update this webpage in due course.
I would like to thank all those who have worked, trained and raced with Stormforce Coaching over the last sixteen years. Over 20,000 sailors and power boaters have joined us on training courses and our race crews have achieved podium results in numerous international regattas. This is in part a great testament to many of the staff that have worked with us. I would particularly like to thank those who have supported us and put their trust in us through the last three years. I am truly sorry this is how it has ended.
Doug Innes, Director
