SSSC now an RYA British Youth Sailing Recognised Club

The Junior Sailing Team are proud to announce that the RYA has awarded South Staffordshire Sailing Club the status of British Youth Sailing Recognised Club!

South Staffs SC are currently 1 of only 25 clubs nationally and are the only sailing club in the area to currently hold this prestigious title.

The initiative recognises clubs that meet British Youth Sailing’s vision to develop and retain the best young racing sailors in the world.

In order for a club to be considered for BYS Recognised Club status it must complete an application process to prove it meets a series of exacting standards and commitment to the development of junior and youth sailing, racing and race training, which is delivered in a safe and fun environment.

On Saturday our Stage 1 students presented, the certificate, plaque and flag form the RYA to our Commodore, Tim Coleshaw who expressed his thanks and congratulations to the Junior Team and commented. “This reflects the hard work done by all the Junior Trainers and Coaches in developing the high standard of support they can give to our juniors.”
