Training Courses & Next Year (Phil Dickinson)
Well-done to 9 candidates who have recently gained their RYA Powerboat Level 2 awards at the club. Thanks also to James from Tees River Rescue for teaching a course alongside me.
We have started a waiting list for anyone wanting to do a course next year, including powerboat and sailing courses. If you know you'd like to do a course, please can you put yourself onto the waiting list. It means we can let you know when we have dates, but more importantly it will help us to put the programme together with the right courses. Book on here: https://members.scalingdam.org/booking
