Congratulations to four of our volunteers on gaining their RYA Northern Ireland Keelboat Level 2 Certificates at Carrickfergus recently – Andrew Bisp, Colin Craig, Michael Donnelly and Karen Graham.
Big thanks from BLS to RYA Senior Instructor Laurence Baalham, ably assisted by our own RYA Keelboat Instructors Geraldine Duggan, Graham Moucka and Tori & Hannah Blair for running the keelboat course over two weekends in March.
Praise to a hardy bunch of people sailing in the testing early spring conditions for the purpose of improving skill levels in order to help BLS in the sailing season ahead. The boats used were two of our very able Hawk 20s.
