Sailability NSW and Australian Sailing have been running Keelboat Instructor Courses specifically for Sailability to train our own instructors. We have run courses in May, June, July and August. To date we have trained 17 instructors across 8 branches.
A big thank you to Sailability Rushcutters Bay for hosting these courses and letting us use one of their Salvos and Primary Wave (the Sonar). Carl Webster from Australian Sailing has been very supportive. He sets up the courses, supplies the course materials and came to the July Course as the second senior instructor. He is also likely to be doing the DSC branch accreditation inspections, at least those north of Sydney Harbour.
Sailability NSW currently has one Senior Keelboat Instructor, senior instructors can run instructor courses under Australian Sailing Administration and accredit instructors. We may in the not to distant future have a Senior Instructor in the Powerboat scheme, allowing Sailability NSW to run Powerboat Instructor courses.
