The Trust recently held our Introduction to Crewing course aimed at 14-16 year olds and hosted 7 young men out on the boats for two days. Their training included steering the boat, learning emergency procedures, using firefighting equipment and rope work mooring the boats. We were blessed with wonderful weather for both days and will be hosting this course again in October, with full crew training for 16-25 year olds in August.

All the boys passed the course receiving their certificates and we hope to have them back to complete the full course when they have turned 16 in order to become fully qualified volunteers.
