OnBoard is a grass roots programme which seeks to make sailing easier to get into for young people. Nationally it has introduced over 500,000 children to sailing in the UK. Our Saturday Club is aligned with the OnBoard brand.
In February 2015 the RYA visited SWSC to officially award us with a plaque. Although the weather was still a little chilly, a number of our Saturday Club sailors were at the club for the presentation and all were looking forward to the new sailing season. The fun continued throughout 2016, 2017 and 2019 and will resume on 6th April 2019 following the winter break.
Cat Ferguson, OnBoard Operations Officer, commented: “It’s great to welcome Scammonden Water Sailing Club to the OnBoard programme. Sailing is a fantastic sport no matter your age, background or ability. We look forward to working with them and the local community to get as many people as possible enjoying our great sport.”
