We are pleased to announce that the next date for Disability Awareness Training for our crew members will be Sunday 8th December 2019.
We need this programme in order to ensure that our disabled members are continually provided with the highest standards of care and safety so they can have the best experiences of sailing on Pride of Man III.
The day commences at 1000hrs at ARC learning in Tromode then moves onto the boat, POM III, for the afternoon session. It will finish around 1600hrs. There are 8 places available so please contact Carole asap if you would like to attend.
