SWSC receives RYA Champion Club status

SWSC_youth sailingWe’re thrilled that SWSC has received Royal Yachting Association Champion Club status.
The scheme, which means Scammonden has a “Centre of Excellence” status for junior race training and racing, validates what our Saturday Club is doing in encouraging new people to sailing and developing young sailors.
For many years the emphasis for our Training Centre has been to introduce new people to sailing and racing and develop their skills as competitive racers. We’re delighted the RYA supports what we are doing in awarding us with Champion Club status.
SWSC would like to thank all volunteers who contribute to the success of the Saturday Club and thank our new and young sailors who are doing brilliantly on the water.
