The past few years have certainly been interesting and as such, we have changed and adapted the business accordingly. Dare I say it, things feel a lot more like ‘normal’ and it is really inspiring to see young people enjoying themselves with us again and having the full outdoor experience that we know brings so many benefits. This time of year gives me a great opportunity to reflect on some of our successes and more moments to be proud about including: The Dorset School Games and Can Do Festival, the completion of phase 1 of our proposed developments at Buddens Activity Centre, reaching full capacity at Buddens with 300 students per week and our hugely successful Apprenticeship programme. An outstanding education provision for our sixth form students

Looking ahead to next year, we do have some exciting plans for further development at our Buddens Activity Centre which will really enhance the experience of our young people staying there. We are also hugely excited about returning to France again next summer after a three-year absence. I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks for your ongoing support and custom this past year and I look forward to seeing you again at Rockley soon. Pip Woods, MD

RYA training is delivered around the world so if you always look for the badge you can be reassured that instruction is consistent and moving from one RYA venue to another shouldn’t result in having to learn everything again from a different syllabus or training style.

Why an RYA Course?

The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is the National Governing Body for sailing, windsurfing and powerboating and is generally considered to provide the benchmark for watersports training standards globally. RYA recognised clubs and centres are inspected and approved by an independent assessor as working to the highest standards for safety, learning and enjoyment for the students of all of their programmes, so this certainly gives peace of mind when entrusting loved ones to a new activity and environment.
