In 2022, our long standing principal of the Training Centre, Gordon Daly has stood down and has passed the reins over to Ian Young.
Ian was chief instructor instructor and Principal of the RYA Training Centre at Loch Venachar Sailing club for many years so his experience will be invaluable to STC.
Jim Steel from Kirkintilloch has agreed to stop into the role of Chief Instructor. With the sad loss of Roy Davidson and Gordon stepping down, we plan to train a further three IWHC instructors. This was successfully concluded and the Training Centre now has 5 instructors across the lowland branches who are qualified to train to RYA Inland Waterways Helm and Crew qualifications.
