The launch of Girls Afloat

Our Summer Programme began after the Easter holidays and it is great to be back on the water again! This means that our Girls Afloat project has launched and our group of girls have started training towards their RYA Keelboat Level 1 and in preparation for Cowes Week 2016. I would like to thank our new volunteers, Sarah and Vicky, with their support on Squib training so far.

The weather has been in our favour for the first two weeks, which has made the girls even more keen to take part and learn as much as they possibly can. Over the  next few weeks, we will be completing man overboard drills, learn the rules of the road and points of sail. All girls are aiming to achieve their RYA Keelboat Level 1 before the Summer holidays and then start working towards their RYA Keelboat Level 2.

Although our Girls Afloat project has taken off by storm, we are still seeking female volunteers so we can get as many of these girls on the water at any one time. If you are interested or know anyone who may want to support us, please email laura@portsmouthsailtrainingtrust.org
