RYA Northern Ireland announces Onboard Development Day

Onboard – RYA’s grassroots programme – is relatively new in Northern Ireland. Its aim is to provide safe, fun and equal access to sailing and windsurfing for anyone aged 8-18 through a structured and progressive programme.

There are currently four Centres in NI but 280 in total across the UK. RYA Northern Ireland is aiming to get more centres Onboard.

At the event, Hannah Cockle, RYA OnBoard Operations Officer will provide information and share her expertise on all things Onboard, from the Sessions Cards to delivering Onboard activity on the water support.

It will be a useful opportunity for Instructors of all levels to help refresh knowledge, learn how to use the OnBoard resources and increase confidence when delivering Junior training sessions. During the day attendees will have a chance to sail, instruct and practice alongside fellow instructors with support from of the OnBoard team.

RYA Northern Ireland’s Active Clubs Co-Ordinator Kate Pounder comments: “We would be delighted if more clubs in Northern Ireland signed up as Onboard clubs. I am looking forward to the Onboard Development Day and it will be a great opportunity to meet and discuss the benefits of the Onboard progamme with club representatives, instructors, programme coordinators, principals, junior/youth leads and those who involved in organising and leading junior programmes.”
