RYA Instructor of the Year Awards
Have you been on a training course recently? Do you run a centre, or regularly work with other Instructors? Did one of your instructors particularly impress you? If so, the RYA would like to hear from you. They are presently taking nominations for their 'Instructor of the Year' awards.
Details of how to nominate an instructor are shown here: http://www.rya.org.uk/WorkingWithUs/...hoftheyear.htm
You can nominate any instructor, from a nearby club, a commercial training centre, or a freelancer, so think of any courses you may have done where you feel the instructor deserves merit.
They might be volunteers or professionals, young or old, newly qualified or highly experienced. The RYA are after inspirational people who are committed to instructing, with a high level of expertise and enthusiasm.
