OnBoard is run by sailing’s National Governing Body, the RYA, OnBoard is a highly successful industry supported grass roots programme which seeks to make sailing easier to get into for young people. Over a ten year period the programme aims to introduce a minimum of 500,000 children to sailing in the UK, converting over 10% of them into regular participants. So far it’s nicely on track.
Cransley Sailing Club is proud to be involved in the OnBoard scheme as from April 2012 all our youth training sessions will be under the OnBoard umbrella. Our Senior Instructor Nigel Austin oversees training at CSC. Our youth training programme is for members only and introduces young people to both the fun and discipline of sailing and the social side of being part of a club.
Quote from RYA to supports clubs involvement
Cat Ferguson, OnBoard Operations Officer, comments; “it’s great to welcome Cransley Sailing Club to the OnBoard programme. Sailing is a fantastic sport no matter your age, background or ability. We look forward to working with them and the local community to get as many people as possible enjoying our great sport.”
