Burton Sailing Club’s 2014 Training Programme is up and running. Courses started with First Aid yesterday and continue over the coming weeks with powerboat and safety boat courses before the main Saturday dinghy starter courses run from late March. Following the success of yesterday’s over-subscribed course, we want to make everyone inside and outside the club aware of our extensive training programme and encourage them to book. Details of how to apply are on the Training page of the website.
The administration of Training Courses has been updated and simplified this week. When someone applies to join a course they now complete a full application form, which will reserve their place on the specific course. When they return the completed and signed form to the Training Administrator, together with a cheque if applicable, their place will be confirmed and joining instructions issued. For anyone who completed a training request form before 29 January, their place should be reserved but it would be helpful if they would re-apply to ensure that all early-birds have been captured by the new system here.
