I caught up with James this morning and here is a short statement of progress at the sailing school:
What was promised on takeover has been achieved. A full programme of courses is offered and courses are filling and the school is busy. Despite the late start there has been a good take up and the staff are kept busy with plenty of students. Furthermore the programme of vessel replacement is being brought forward and new vessels such as the paddle boards have been introduced.
Staffing has been accomplished including those needed for the winter. However, James Urquhart has tendered his resignation as he is moving to the West Coast. Chris Bradby has stepped up as Chief Instructor, James Pearson is now the Principal and Bosun, and Caroline Pearson is the Business Development Manager.
