The Charity needs enthousiastic committed volunteers. Although some members of the current Committee are prepared to go forward we do seek new people with fresh ideas to contribute to the growth and future succes of the Charity. If you do not want to be part of the Executive Committee there are several other roles that require an enthusiastic volunteer, such as Membership secretary, PR manager, Yacht manager or Crewmaster.

Disability Awareness Training, update August 2019

As previously posted on this site, the next Disability Awareness Training session for crew is on Saturday 5th October, and we've had a very good uptake for places from some of our newest members who joined SFTD recently.

However there are still 2 places available to any crew who have not yet completed the course, including those who have only attended one day of the previous 2-day training.

If you would like to take a place please let me know asap!
