In conjunction with the Royal Yachting Association training centre at Conningbrook Lake (behind the Julie Rose Stadium Ashford), we are pleased to offer a parent-led club to children from Spring Grove School, aged 8 and over.
The club will award RYA Youth dinghy stage 1-4 certificates for children when they have successfully completed the syllabus for each stage.
Sessions are to be held on Wednesday afternoons, for at least the first half of the Autumn Term, between 4pm and 6pm.
Each session will be taken by two instructors and one or two safety boats, depending on numbers. The children will have an hour on the water including launching, plus changing of clothes time.
Wetsuits and buoyancy aids are provided; the children should please bring their own bike helmets (to protect heads from the boom) and swim gear.
This is a parent-run after school activity and will require at least one parent helper for each session.
Cost is £12 per session, plus £20 membership fee.
We would need a commitment of at least six children per session.
If you are interested or would like any further information please contact: Louise Courtenay-Snipp: firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Wednesday 6th September 2017. ... See MoreSee Less

Honoured with an MBE and a Member of the Order of Australia, Cuthbert’s greatest accolade came in 2012 when she became the only Australian to be inducted into the athletics hall of fame in Barcelona. On the night a fellow inductee, Usain Bolt, approached her, bowed, and touched her on the shoulder, proclaiming: “Four Olympic golds and 16 world records. Wow! You sure could run.”
